MCCSN's funding comes 100% from the surrounding community, and most all of that money goes right back to patients in the lower middle Tennessee area. We have very low administrative costs because we have only two part-time paid staff members, and that is our office manager and office assistant. These positions are necessary because of the large volume of help requests that we constantly have to coordinate. All other time is donated by our wonderful volunteers.
Your monetary and time donations are a precious resource to us. Case in point: we help so many people out with financial needs that by the time our walkathon comes around in September, we are almost tapped out of monetary resources. So every dime that we collect is vital to our cause.
The Annual Walkathon
As mentioned before, the annual walkathon is a vital source of income for MCCSN. Without it, very few patients could be financially aided. Organize a team in your area. It costs $50 per person to walk. One way of paying for this is to get a business to sponsor you as a walker. Teams can be named in honor or memory of a loved one or even with the name of the supporting business or organization. Click Here for the team form.
Also, honorary luminaries can be purchased for $10 in the name of a loved one who has been affected by cancer. These luminaries are placed around the stadium and lit during the Friday night memorial ceremony. If you are a cancer survivor, we would like to honor you with a shirt to wear as you and your fellow survivors walk the first lap of the walkathon.
