Reunion with a Cause raises funds for Genesys cancer patients

(GRAND BLANC/HOLLY, MI) Genesys, in partnership with the Holly community, sponsors the eighth annual Reunion with a Cause, Friday, Aug. 12 from 6 p.m. to 10:30 p.m., at Holly High School.
One hundred percent of the proceeds from this event go to help Genesys cancer patients with special financial needs.

The evening begins with a celebration walk for all cancer survivors "symbolizing hope for others who are affected by this disease," reports Nick Evans, Genesys Health Foundation vice president.

Following the walk around the Holly High School track, family activities, entertainment, children's games, a silent auction, music and refreshments highlight the evening, which concludes with a candle-lighting ceremony to remember those who lost their battle to cancer.

Reunion with a Cause supporters are encouraged to collect donations. Last year's event yielded more than $80,000 - another recordbreaking year, Evans announces.

This money is used to help Genesys cancer patients with their physical and emotional needs during treatment. This includes: medication not covered by insurance, medical equipment, rental equipment, private pay aides, transportation to and from cancer treatments, and other special needs not covered by insurance.

Everyone in the community is welcome to join the festivities - by walking the track, enjoying the entertainment, supporting cancer survivors, or making a contribution, Evans adds.

For more information on Reunion with a Cause, call Brenda Wehrli from Genesys Health Foundation, at 810-606-6020; or Charlene Wright, chair of the Reunion and cancer survivor from Holly, at 248-634-7423.
