Please join us as we raise funds for The Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Gerald Gibson's memory. All proceeds from The Gerald Gibson Memorial Charity Golf Event will be made in Papa Gerald's honor and his courageous 2.5 year battle with cancer. We're excited to have your support as we endeavor to raise funds for lifesaving cancer research.
We care about lifesaving research because too many people still face cancer and other diseases.
We believe in Fred Hutch because scientists there are leading the charge to prevent, diagnose, and treat cancer and other diseases. They are making powerful new discoveries, from how tumors start and hide in the body to how our immune systems can be harnessed to fight back. And they are finding ways to use more and better data to improve care and save lives. In addition, Fred Hutch is at the forefront of the global COVID-19 response: deploying experts in infectious disease, immunology, and more to track and understand the virus and lead the large-scale vaccine and treatment trials necessary to overturn the pandemic.
We're ready for a healthier world, and we know you are, too. Let’s invest in the breakthrough science that will get us there. Together, we can help more people spend more time — and enjoy more milestones — with the people they love.
Please join us and donate today. Thank you!
