Local Campaign Events

An exciting evening of inspiration, at this event we will reveal and celebrate the total raised by our Students of the Year candidates as well as Kickoff our Man & Woman of the Year candidates on their own 10-week fundraising campaigns! 

This year's Midpoint Event will be a tour through the Providence Cancer Center.  Candidates and key team members will meet researchers and hear about their work, how investment in cure research is resulting in more and better treatment options, and see a working lab up close.

The final event of this fast-paced campaign, at Grand Finale we will reveal the total raised by our Man & Woman of the Year candidates and celebrate their tremendous efforts over the prior 10-weeks!
