Donations and net proceeds from the event will assist in further strengthening and supporting critical cancer treatment programs and services for patients at Exeter Hospital’s Center for Cancer Care. Through the continued support of our community, we are better able to provide exceptional cancer care close to home, including purchasing the latest equipment and technology, implementing innovative treatment options and therapies, and providing comprehensive patient support services.

A portion of event proceeds will also benefit The Beyond the Rainbow Fund, a fund dedicated to providing financial assistance and support to patients in need while undergoing cancer treatment. Whether through providing assistance with daily living expenses, such as rent, fuel, groceries or gas, or providing wellness and integrative therapies, such as massage therapy, this Fund  has made a direct impact on the lives of many patients.
