Starting at 6:00 PM on Wednesday March 14th and running through midnight on Thursday March 15th, please visit the website below to contribute to ThinkBIG's fundraising efforts via this year's Raise the Region campaign.
Raise the Region is a 30 hour online fundraising drive hosted annually in March by the First Community Foundation Partnership. The goal of this event is to help area non-profits increase fundraising and awareness about their respective non-profit, and ThinkBIG has registered to participate in this event for the third year in the row. By participating, it also allows ThinkBIG to be eligible for thousands of dollars in other monetary prizes that would contribute to the fundraising total.
ThinkBIG has the primary purpose of helping support pediatric cancer patients and their families with the financial stresses that occur while caring for a child who has cancer. ThinkBIG alleviates this stress by helping families with the costs of their rent/mortgage payments, utility bills, and other out of pocket medical expenses. Since 2014, ThinkBIG has allocated more than $225,000 worth of financial support to more than 70 different families who are battling pediatric cancer.
