project HOPE

Join area businesses in supporting project HOPE, an exciting week-long community event building awareness and providing wellness tips to employees about the four most prevalent cancers in North Dakota.  The next project HOPE is scheduled for the communities of Dickinson, Hettinger, Bowman and Lemmon on July 17-21, 2017. This community wellness event is designed to educate employees about healthy lifestyles, cancer prevention and early detection and to promote hope for a healthier tomorrow.

Participating businesses are asked to allow their employees to dress casually and/or wear the cancer ribbon colors on the designated day in support of cancer awareness.  Featured cancers that week include Skin Cancer, Breast Cancer, Pancreatic Cancer and Lung Cancer. The last day of project HOPE week we celebrate Survivors!

To participate in project HOPE, each employee is typically asked to make a donation of $10 to the Bismarck Cancer Center Foundation. In return for their donation and participation, Bismarck Cancer Center provides each business with posters, an awareness newsletter, stickers, wellness information and more.

All proceeds from project HOPE support the Bismarck Cancer Center Foundation. Donations stay local and are used to support cancer patients with financial, transportation, lodging, emotional, and additional needs.

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 19, 2017.

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.
