12th Annual ‘Fight It!’ Race To Raise Money For Brenda Mehling Cancer Fund

The Brenda Mehling Cancer Fund is hoping to raise money for young adults battling cancer, with their 12th annual “Fight It!” Race at Central Park on Saturday, May 11.  Check-in on the day of the race opens at 7 a.m. The Fun Run will begin at 7:30 a.m. and the 5k/10k at 8 a.m.

Each year this race has raised more than $20,000 to meet daily needs for men and women, ages 18-40, who are currently in cancer treatment. Registration fees are $37 for the 10K, $32 for the 5K and $17 for the 1K Fun Run. Canine companions can run for $5 each. Registration by May 1 includes a t-shirt and a goody bag. Runners and supporters are encouraged to register and raise money through the website to help the BMCF meet their fundraising goals. Donations can also be made by mail. The top fundraiser will win an Apple iPad.

The Brenda Mehling Cancer Fund supports patients ages 18-40 as they undergo cancer treatment. This fund provides services to meet daily needs that are not covered by insurance. Typical grants cover $600 worth of medical co-payments, transportation, rents or mortgages, repairs and groceries.

Since it was founded by Brenda Mehling in 2001, the Fund has provided more than $258,000 in services for 382 young adults across 30 different states. She built it specifically for young adults her age to maintain self-respect during the months of treatment and minimize the financial stresses that are associated with this trying time. 

In February 2004, Brenda lost her second battle against cancer. However, the BMCF continues to realize her vision of a nationwide support organization that helps young adults fight cancer.
