Cancer Navigators’ annual Cast Off Against Cancer event will take place on May 19 at Barron Stadium from 2 to 4 p.m.
“Cast Off is Cancer Navigators’ largest annual event and includes a variety of activities, from oar decorating to dropping daisies, and vendors,” said Sarah Husser, Fundraising & Community Outreach Coordinator for Cancer Navigators. “I encourage everyone to stop by on May 19 to experience the event and learn more about Cancer Navigators.”
Cancer Navigators serves as a complement to the medical expertise of cancer care providers by navigating patients to resources that touch all levels of the healing experience: body, mind and spirit. Services are free of charge to patients, and in 2018, Cancer Navigators served over 1,700 patients with an economic impact of over $2 million.
You can commemorate a loved one who has bravely battled cancer through the Daisy Drop. For just $5, you can purchase a daisy and drop it into the Oostanaula River. That will be done during a walk across the Chief John Ross Memorial Bridge that links West Third Street and the Town Green.
Cast Off marks the conclusion of a communitywide fundraising effort on behalf of Cancer Navigators by teams. A variety of awards and trophies, from Most Money Raised to Team Spirit, will be presented to teams. All event proceeds remain in our community to help provide front-line services to cancer patients.
Cancer Navigators is also selling official Cast Off T-shirts for $12. Visit cancernavigatorsga.org to find an online form to buy either a daisy, a T-shirt, or both. For details, call Cancer Navigators at 706-509-5040.
