As many of you know, October is our "Brave Enough" fundraising campaign kickoff. Havelock Fire and Rescue was the FIRST agency in Craven County to start such a cancer fundraising program. We have raised over $151,646 to support the needs of cancer patients in the area over the last five years! What started as a local 'drive' has grown into support movement from not only NC or the USA, but has finally crossed the Atlantic making this little fundraiser a global stand against cancer. We have sold thousands of shirts just about everywhere. Canada, Australia, Europe and China have all purchased Pink items from the Havelock Fire and Rescue online store!
Where the Money Goes
All money received through this fundraiser is used to fund costs not typically covered by insurance companies and hopefully prevents the families fighting this terrible disease from additional unforeseen costs during their battle. All proceeds go directly to the "Havelock Fire Rescue Cancer Care Fund" and no money is used for "administrative" costs. The Havelock Fire Rescue Cancer Care Fund is administered by the Carolina East Foundation (LINK).
Thank you for supporting our Fund and, hopefully, making things a little easier for the people in our community and their families fighting cancer.
Havelock Fire Rescue Fund has paid for:
Follow up mammograms
Wigs for chemotherapy patients
Gas cards for transportation to and from treatment
