This event helps raise money for the Andrea Lynn Cancer Fund. These funds used to provide grants to families that are receiving cancer treatments and struggling to make ends meet. With the existence of so many charity events for cancer, this one provides direct financial support to local families.

The Andrea Lynn Cancer Fund partners with the Centegra Sage Cancer Center in McHenry, IL to help identify cancer patients eligible to apply for financial assistance grants.
