When the Hamel Rodeo kicked off this year, it did it with a new partner: the Minnesota Lions Childhood Cancer Foundation. On the Thursday, July 7 night of rodeo, $1 from each ticket sold will go towards the foundation. The foundation raises funds for families with kids undergoing cancer treatment.
“The main thing (for the foundation) is to help with travel expenses for families that must travel for their child’s treatment,” Monies raised go towards gift cards for fuel, food and lodging; a portion of the monies raised go to childhood cancer research at the University of Minnesota. “No money leaves the state,” Nearly one hundred percent of funds raised for the Childhood Cancer Foundation go directly to benefit those in need; there is very little overhead expense.
