Our charity is Friends Fight Together.

Friends Fight Together is the brainchild of Keynote speaker Tina DeSalvo, who herself is a breast cancer survivor and passionate about helping women and men understand about self and early detection, treatment and resources.

During Get Your Motors Running, we'll be holding a basket raffle. Raffle baskets donated by readers and authors and any community members who would like to donate and all proceeds will go to benefit Friends Fight Together, in partnership with HSHS, a local hospital system. All proceeds will stay within the Green Bay community and all money donated will be earmarked for unmet needs.

Unmet needs include but are not limited to gas cards to help patients get to and from treatment; grocery cards to help alleviate the financial burdens of missing work while going through treatment; the same with assistance with energy bills; prosthetics and wigs, etc. A representative from HSHS will be present to receive the money during Get Your Motors Running.

Can't make it to the event but would still like to donate?

Money raised for Friends Fight Together will be donated to the HSHS St. Vincent's Cancer Centers and is earmarked for cancer patients "Unmet Needs". Unmet needs are things the insurance companies do not support such as assistance with gas cards to get to treatment. Grocery gift cards to help with food items since patients often have to take off work to receive treatments, and wigs or prosthetics that are needed. All proceeds from this event for Friends Fight Together will be kept within our community, so it will stay local.
