QUINCY, IL – 1/11/22 – Tickets are now on sale for the Quincy Medical Group Foundation’s Community Cancer Crush event. This year’s event will take place on April 15, 2022, at the Ambiance in Quincy. Doors open at 5:30 p.m. and the events begin at 6 p.m. Tickets can be purchased online at cancercrush.org.
Since 2014, Cancer Crush has raised funds for local patients in their fight against cancer. In that time, the event has raised over $521,000 to help patients with the expenses associated with cancer treatment and other needs including transportation, housing, and much more.
“Cancer Crush brings our community together in support of patients who have or are currently undergoing cancer treatment. We want patients to know they have a community behind them,” said Morgan Parker, director of community relations at QMG. “Cancer Crush provides much needed financial support to patients to help with everyday expenses, so they can focus on their health.”
Cancer Crush will once again include Buzz Off Cancer, an event which began in 2018 and invites participants, or “buzzees,” to shave their heads in support of local cancer patients. The common missions of Buzz Off Cancer and Cancer Crush provided an opportunity to bring the two events together. Buzz Off Cancer has raised a total of $72,864 since its inception in 2018.
“This event would not be possible without the community’s support. We are so grateful for the generosity of so many who join us to help our local patients in their battle against cancer,” said Parker.
This year’s event includes a silent auction, games, food trucks, and live music. We hope you will join us as we crush cancer! COVID safety guidelines will be followed. For more information, visit cancercrush.org.
