On Thursday, January 12, 2023, Nick Foederer hosted a jet ski event in Daytona Beach,
Florida, with the help of Brian Sizemore, owner of Torrent Pumps. Proceeds benefited Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center. Riders from all over took to the water on their jet skis to perform their best, most extreme tricks — including backflips — as they competed against one another. The event raised an incredible $35,826 for the cause!

2. DiVal Safety Charity Event

On Friday, February 3, the Pembroke High School girls basketball team, with the help of Mike Wilson, a special education teacher, hosted its 12th annual charity basketball game. Shooting For A Cure! started in 2011 after coach Ron Funke discovered his wife had been diagnosed with cancer. Since that time, the event has grown larger every year, becoming a tradition for the school district. To date, Pembroke has raised more than incredible $250,000 for cancer care and research.

These are just a few of the hundreds of unique fundraising events you can host to support cancer patients at Roswell Park. Every event makes an impact.
