61 for 61 hits a home run

September 13, 2017

On Thursday, Sept. 7, hundreds participated in a day of 61 for 61 and Roger Maris Cancer Center Home Run Walk festivities to benefit local cancer services and research.

See pictures from the whole day.

The day started as 107.9 the FOX took to the airwaves, broadcasting live in front of the Honor Memorial Wall for the annual radiothon. Throughout the day, DJs took listeners into the heart of Roger Maris, sharing inspiring stories from local cancer survivors and their families as well as staff.

Other activities included a silent auction, 61¢ tacos at Taco John’s, Family Fare cookouts, and the Home Run Walk. This year’s race featured a special new 1-mile color run/walk symbolizing all the cancer awareness colors.

As the sun set, a candle lighting ceremony brought the community together to honor and remember loved ones who have faced cancer.

Every dollar made a difference

In total, the day’s events raised more than $125,000 for the Sanford Roger Maris Cancer Center. Every dollar will support important services such as the survivorship program and nurse navigation, as well as patient amenities like valet parking, the nutrition center and so much more.

“Every year, the 61 for 61 Honor Memorial Wall fills with names of survivors and those who have lost their battle to cancer reminding us of the important work the Roger Maris Cancer Center does,” said Colleen Hardy, development officer for the Sanford Health Foundation. “The dollars raised impact patients today who are battling cancer and provide hope for the future in cancer research.”

Thank you to everyone who helped make this year’s events so successful!
