The 7th annual Cultivating a Cure is a fundraising event to support cancer treatment and prevention research at The Comprehensive Cancer Center—Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital and Richard J. Solove Research Institute at The Ohio State University.
Cultivating a Cure was started by Nationwide board member and former Ohio Farm Bureau President Brent Porteus as a way to remember his wife, Debbie, after she died from breast cancer and to raise funds in an effort to find a cure for cancer.
Children also are welcome to this family friendly event with activities for all ages. The goal is to involve as many people as possible in efforts to connect as a community and recognize the responsibility to support efforts to find a cure to a disease that has impacted many lives and families.
Over the past six years, Cultivating a Cure has raised almost $350,000 for cancer treatment and research.
