May 3-7, 2021 – Project HOPE in Bismarck & Mandan.
Join area businesses in supporting project HOPE, an exciting week-long community event building awareness and providing wellness tips to employees about four of the most prevalent cancers in North Dakota. 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 for 2021 Project HOPE week include: Breast, Skin, Prostate, and Lung. On the last day of project HOPE week, we celebrate Survivorship!
To participate in project HOPE, each employee is typically asked to make a donation of $10 to the Bismarck Cancer Center Foundation, but this is not a requirement to participate. In return for their donation and participation, Bismarck Cancer Center provides each participant with posters, awareness newsletters, stickers, wellness information, and more.
All proceeds from project HOPE support the Bismarck Cancer Center Foundation. Donations are used to support cancer patients with financial, transportation, lodging, emotional care, massage therapy, and additional needs.
