Thanks to everyone who came out to provide their support to the third annual Fueled Up & Fired Up Pick 5 Challenge to benefit the Nether Providence First Responders and Susan G. Komen for the Cure.
The event drew more than 300 participants and raised over $18,000, which was $7,000 more than was raised last year. Since Wilson’s involvement in this event, over $40,000 has been raised — plus an additional $15,000 just for Komen from our Pink Truck Campaign. The event included a silent auction, more than $10,000 worth of raffle items and food for everyone!
Nether Providence Township First Responders include our police force and the volunteer fire companies of South Media and Garden City. Proceeds from the race will pay for training, replacement equipment and emergency repairs.
Susan G. Komen for the Cure is the world’s largest source of nonprofit funds dedicated to fighting breast cancer.
