On Saturday, July 26, 2014, youth and staff from the One Hope United CARE Residential program in northern Illinois ran in a 5K to support No One Fights Cancer Alone (NOFCA). This non-profit was founded two years ago by Donna Bergl, a long-time OHU Volunteer, and John Mehnert. Mehnert shared that this 5K was, “a grass roots effort to help local families who are battling cancer.”
This second annual NOFCA 5K run raised $6,600, with over 200 people participating. The proceeds will benefit two local families struggling with cancer.
We’re so proud of the young men in our CARE program for their willingness to get involved to help others and for their hearts of service!
