Breast Cancer Awareness Donation To RMC Foundation

Representatives from Kick Start for a Cure and Players Bar & Grill in Ripon recently presented a $4,650 check to Rita Meidam, Foundation for Ripon Medical Center executive director (second from left). The donation comes from the Kick Start for a Cure Poker Ride for Breast Cancer Awareness where Ripon and area communities joined together for a day filled with activities, silent auctions and raffles to raise money to benefit breast cancer awareness. The donation will assist women in Ripon and surrounding communities that have been touched by breast cancer with basic life needs during treatment. In addition, gasoline, manicure, etc. gift cards to local businesses were donated to further assist women in their breast cancer journey.
