We will be donating a portion of the proceeds from the BrockTrot to The BMC Lung Cancer Fund. This fund will support education, prevention and early detection of lung cancer, and is currently focused on funding FREE lung cancer screenings to promote early detection and treatment right here at home in our community. Your contributions help support these important efforts to raise awareness and improve the outcomes of people with lung cancer in the Berkshires, as well as support the innovative studies and clinical trials at Dana-Farber which will one day help make Thoracic Cancer history. Thank You!
