In 2018, Cancer Coalition of Ben Hill and Irwin County (CCBHIC) was formed and introduced Project Pinwheel: Spinning for a Cure to raise funds; benefitting both cancer patients in Ben Hill and Irwin county and the DMC Oncology Department. The pinwheels represent donations ‘in honor of’ or ‘in memory of’ a loved one who has or had cancer.
In addition to Project Pinwheel, we hosted the “Run Away from Cancer” Glow Run fundraiser in 2019. We encourage supporters to continue their fundraising efforts with bake sales, jean Friday fundraiser, basket raffles, etc., whether it’s to support cancer research with the American Cancer Society, or to support cancer patients in our community through the CCBHIC. All CCBHIC proceeds will benefit our community; distributed by need to Ben Hill and Irwin county cancer patients needing assistance with medicine, basic needs, travel expenses associated with treatment, etc. Thanks to our generous supporters and donors who make this possible!
For more information about keeping the donations local and how to get involved with the CCBHIC, contact Holley Lee at (229) 424-1707 or email cancercoalitionbhic@. Like us on Facebook at gmail.comCancer Coalition of Ben Hill and Irwin County
