All the proceeds from the Ride For Cancer snowmobile run will be donated to the Keller Family Community Foundation (KFCF). The foundation supports research, education, and informa- tional activities to increase public awareness and to prevent and treat chronic health conditions and dis- eases, such as cancer, diabetes, and depression. The 501 (#3) non-profit foundation was started in 2009 by the Nick Keller family which had a vision to help others with cancer. The family wanted to be able to help others that have cancer and to help in times when money is short. Currently, the foundation has been able to help by giving grants to Ruth's Free Wig Closet, Centra Care Hospitals, (St. Cloud, Melrose, Alexandria and Long Prairie), St. Michaels in Sauk Centre, Paynesville Health Care, Portage Health in Hancock, Mich., Road to Recovery in Wis- consin and the Marshfield Clinics in Michigan. The hospitals have been able to purchase gas cards to be given out to cancer patients that are in financial need and to help them get to their treatments. We are truly people helping peo- ple. The Stearns County Snowmo- bile Association is asking you and the whole family to come out and ride for a great cause. You can pick up a pledge sheet from any local snowmobile club member, or by going directly to the Keller Fam- ily Community Foundation web- site:, and printing a form. If you are going to get out and snowmobile, why not do it for a great cause. So gather your friends and family and COME OUT AND HAVE SOME FUN. You can find all of the details regard- ing pledges (donations per mile or a one-time pledge) along with meeting Nick and Mary Jane on the site as well. The general pub- lic is welcome to join in on the fun as well. The cancer run /bonfire/ meal will go on with or without snow. All checks can be written out directly to KFCF and turned in at the Country Snow Cruisers Club- house located at 22698 County Road 12 in Richmond. You can also come out and enjoy a compli- mentary meal and beverage out by the bonfire after 4 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 16. Let's get every sled in the country out for a great day on the trails!
