As you know, the spring is usually a very busy time for Cancer Support Services preparing for our annual fundraiser,“For the Health of It.” Due to COVID-19, we were unable to host a large gathering this year for the 10th Anniversary of our event. However, we organized a “virtual” walk that we thought would be a fun way for our community to participate in “For the Health of It” and generate much-needed funds for our program. Walk participants were invited to walk anytime between June 26th – 28th, wherever they chose and to post photos and videos of their walk on our Facebook page. We were pleasantly surprised by the overwhelming response from the community that participated in the event, as well as, the businesses that generously sponsored and donated prizes and giveaways. We exceeded our goal and even beat our fundraising numbers from last year’s event!! It was a big success!
We could not do it without our amazing sponsors and we want to give a big shout out to:
Taos Community Foundation, Kit Carson Electric Cooperative, Nusenda Credit Union, Private Label Select, Taos News, KTAOS and Luna, LMNOC Broadcasting, KNCE, Taos Land Trust, Town of Taos, Taos Ski Valley (TSV Inc. Charitable Fund), Cid’s Food Market, Taos Mountain Outfitters, Centinel Bank, PPC Solar, Breastfeeding NM, DeVargas Funeral Home of Taos, Taos Whole Health, Randall Lumber and Hardware, Taos Medical Group, Taos Cookery, Koko Deli, Twirl, Rio Grande Ace, Taos Food Coop, Taos Bakes, Taos Herb, and Rolling Still Spirits.
All proceeds from the For The Health of It! event go directly to providing non-medical services to our community members fighting cancer. Thank you Taos for supporting this vital service that we offer to our community and we look forward to seeing you next year for our 11th Annual where we hope to have a large, fun community gathering and a health fair.
