June 10, 2022 Triathalon was a HUGE Success!
The Ellsworth County Cancer Fund committee would like to take this opportunity to thank the many people who helped make the 13th Annual Triathalon a success. To date we have raised $40,360.70 so thanks to everyone who sponsored the event, bought luminaries, gave donations, were team members or participated in any way. A special thanks to the cancer survivors and their families who came out to support the event. Because of the generosity of many, we were able to give out $34,783.00 in grants this fiscal year that ends June 30, 2022.
