Making a Difference Together

UCT-e-a-m-i-n-g up for a Cure

Posted on Mar 28, 2013 by: UCT

UCT is excited to welcome another new alternative council – Families for a Cure Council #2007! This is our eighth alternative council formed since November with more potential councils on the way!

Families for a Cure is a group of friends that have been united through their collective experiences supporting family and friends as they have battled cancer. Together, as a family dedicated to making the lives of other cancer patients and their supporters better, their goal is to raise $1 million dollars by 2021 through social fundraising events to help fund cancer research and patient care programs while advocating and educating the public about steps they can take to prevent cancer.

Each year, Families for a Cure donates 88% of the money they raise to The American Cancer Society and OSU James, and 10% is given to other cancer organizations and patients in need.

By partnering with UCT, Families for a Cure can now take advantage of the all that UCT and its creative consultants have to offer such as graphic design services, social media planning, event and fundraising concepts, planning and resources, public relations consulting and more!

UCT is proud to welcome Families for a Cure Council #2007 and support their growing efforts!
