CARES Cancer Challenge


Do you have what it takes to participate in the CARES Cancer Challenge being held between March 1 – April 26, 2018?  

The CARES Cancer Challenge will begin in less than two months!  We are actively recruiting community leaders from around East Tennessee who will come together for the common cause of raising money to support cancer patients and their families during this eight-week challenge.  Proceeds from this campaign benefit the Provision CARES Foundation, a regional charity that serves cancer patients regardless of where they are treated.  In 2017, they served more than 1,600 patients from nine different healthcare entities in East Tennessee.

Basically, if you or someone you know participates in the Challenge, we will provide them with the resources they need to ask their friends and family to help them support cancer patients.  Participants can raise money in a variety of ways during the campaign:

  • Cash or check donations
  • Online donations through participant’s own website that we’ll create
  • Special events (some participants may recruit businesses to have a “give back” day and a certain percent of sales would go towards their campaign)
  • Auction items (any items secured by the participants that is included and sold in our auction at the dinner on April 26 counts towards the participants’ campaign)
  • Sponsorship & ticket sales – if participants secure sponsorships from their own or other companies or sell tables ($1,500+) or tickets ($125+) that counts towards participants’ campaign

To participate or learn more about what is involved, please contact Les Fout at (865) 243-3460 or

Our celebration event for all participants will occur at the East Tennessee Cancer Awards Dinner & Auction on April 26th.  This event will feature a silent auction beginning at 6:00 p.m. followed by an outstanding meal, entertainment and the awards ceremony.  Make plans to join 500 or so other people celebrate cancer survivors while honoring those we have lost.
