The Lincoln County Rodeo Association recently donated a $3,000 check to Marshfield Clinic’s Wausau/Weston cancer care patient fund.
During the past five years, the rodeo association has donated nearly $16,000 to the Clinic to help patients. The most recent donation was raised last summer during the Wisconsin River Pro Rodeo and the Tough Enough to Wear Pink campaign.
Gail Bloch, a member of the rodeo association, “We’re happy to help cancer patients and their families.”
The money was raised from the sale of Tough Enough to Wear Pink apparel, a quilt raffle and a 5K run and walk held in conjunction with the rodeo. Bloch recently presented the check to Marshfield Clinic Development Officer Ann Lucas.
Lucas said, “This money is earmarked for cancer patient care, helping those people with cancer during an especially difficult time.”
