On October 10th plan to dine out with friends, family, and colleagues and “Stick A Fork in Cancer.”   Twenty-seven participating Greater Mankato area restaurants will donate a portion of their 10/10 proceeds to benefit the Jonathan Zierdt Cancer Fund, American Cancer Society and LIVESTRONG at the YMCA in an effort to support and better the lives of area cancer patients, their families, and caregivers.

This will be the third year of Stick a Fork in Cancer.   Over the first two years, more than $60,000 has been raised for the three beneficiary organizations. The goal of this year’s event is to increase the money raised to enable these organizations to further help community members who receive a cancer diagnosis.
