There are a variety of ways to get involved with the society. It goes without saying that simply spreading the word in your community is a great start, however, there are other ways as well. Below are some ideas and suggestions:
Team 922 is an easy way to raise funds to continue the goals and objectives of the Society. It's quite simple too! Each team leader gets nine individuals to commit $22 per month and they in turn build their team of nine and repeat the process. And, to boot, there's....."no running, no riding, no razors involved". How simple is that? Not only is it easy, it's not cost prohibitive for most. Just imagine, if nine got nine, then they got nine who got nine, we could raise almost $100,000/year!

Buddies come alongside and help someone gain their bearings whether that's with finding lodging and resources near a major cancer center, or even accompanying them to an appointment or other treatment related meeting.
