Central Plains Cancer Services (CPCS) were given a treat from the Portage Terriers this past weekend for the Stick it to Cancer game.
CPCS Executive Director Sharilyn Knox says that this is the second time they have partnered with the terriers and the Local Firefighters #1079, and they always feel the love from the community.
"We've just found, it's been a great fit, and we've raised lots of money for Central Plains cancer service."
Knox says that they raised a total of $8727.50 for CPCS and their services. She mentions that the City of Portage and surrounding area always step up for the cause.
"We know that this region supports what we do because cancer affects everyone, and so we're always grateful when people open up their pocketbooks and help us, and we're grateful for the Portage of professional firefighters local, who partnered with this with us on this. Firefighting-related cancers are on the rise, so we always want to help promote that too."
She says the clock does not stop for CPCS and their fundraising efforts as they also have a 24-Hour Relay in Southport this weekend and a Radiothon next month.
