The Bismarck Cancer Center (BCC) allows patients in our area to receive state-of-the-art cancer treatment and caring support while staying close to home and loved ones. We have a highly-skilled and compassionate team of radiation therapists, medical physicists, nurses and dosimetrists working with your radiation oncologist to care for you during your treatment.

The Bismarck Cancer Center Foundation is blessed to have the support of the surrounding communities. You will find a wide variety of fundraisers to participate in all with the goal of helping raise money to provide hope, help and healing to the people undergoing treatment at the Bismarck Cancer Center. From race cars, to horseback riding, from Applefest to Masks in the Moonlight, from hunting to bowling and more, there is something for everyone.

Horses for Healing

Equine therapy has proven helpful for cancer patients because horses are naturally social animals that welcome a special bond with individuals. Once that connection is formed, it can provide great comfort to the cancer survivor, giving them a much-needed escape after the trauma of fighting cancer.

The Bismarck Cancer Center's new equine therapy program will be held at the TR4 Heart and Soul Riding Arena the 4th Thursday of each month. The equine therapy classes will be free to survivors and a guest. Register online or for more information, call 701-222-6100. Space is limited. 

(*Participants must be at least 4 years old of age and under 210 lbs. Helmets are provided and required.)

North Dakota small towns race for Courage Against Cancer

Zeeland to Hauge, North Dakota -- The eighth annual Courage Against Cancer 5K /Half-Marathon road race will once again bring runners from all over to walk, jog, run or bike from Zeeland, ND (population 85) to Hauge, ND (population 67) on Saturday, August 18, 2018.

Like most road races, Courage Against Cancer has a committee of passionate individuals supporting a great cause, but unlike most, this race takes place in a community most North Dakota individuals have never visited!  Located southeast of Bismarck, ND, the population of both towns is around 150 people and race organizers would love to see the race participants outnumber the population of both towns.

“This race actually started with a few friends who wanted to do something a little crazy after battling a cancer diagnosis,” said Denise, race chair. “After going through cancer treatment and surviving, friends decided to walk from Zeeland to Hauge to celebrate survivorship and just because they could.”

The neighbors rallied around the walkers and soon other individuals were joining and supporting them. “We thought, if people want to walk/run/bike with us, we should turn it into a road race and raise money to help other local individuals battling cancer,” said original racer Joyce. “Courage Against Cancer participants are sure to feel the support and generosity of small town North Dakota during this special day.”

Race day includes a half marathon starting at the Zeeland school at 8:30 a.m., a 5K run/walk starting at the Hauge Amvets at 9:30 a.m., freewill lunch, memorial balloon release, door prizes and more!  Proceeds from the race will go to the Bismarck Cancer Center Foundation.
