Felling Trailers will host its seventh annual Trailer for a Cause online auction of an FT-3 Utility trailer to benefit a nonprofit organization. Felling Trailers’ goal is to bring awareness to various nonprofits that are making a difference by donating 100 percent of the winning bid from the auction to a different nonprofit each year. The previous Trailer for a Cause auctions raised over $17,000, and the money raised benefited organizations such as: Bright Pink—Breast Cancer; PANCAN—Pancreatic Cancer; ACT on ALZ—Alzheimer’s; ABTA—American Brain Tumor Association; SOMN—Special Olympics Minnesota; and MOCA—Minnesota Ovarian Cancer Alliance.
Felling Trailers, Inc. selected Children’s Cancer Research Fund (CCRF) as the 2019 Trailer for a Cause auction beneficiary. “For the second year, we put the decision of selecting the benefiting organization in the hands of our team members in the form of a vote. A list of organizations and corresponding information was given to team members to select from, and once the votes were tallied, Children’s Cancer Research Fund received the most votes in their favor,” Brenda Jennissen, president/CEO of Felling Trailers, says. “Nearly all of our team members know someone or are someone whose life has been impacted by childhood cancer, and we look forward to the opportunity to make a difference.” The 2019 Trailer for a Cause will be painted in CCRF’s signature grey color and display the Children’s Cancer Research Fund emblem.
A Fall 2019 auction is planned for Trailer for a Cause. Leading up to the auction, Felling Trailers will work with CCRF to generate awareness about childhood cancer along with the research funding and resources that CCRF has to offer those individuals and families it affects. Only 4 percent of federal cancer funding is dedicated to childhood cancer, and Children’s Cancer Research Fund works to fill the gaps by providing the critical funding needed to find safer, more effective therapies for kids battling cancer. Today more than 15,000 kids and young adults are diagnosed with cancer each year, which is approximately 42 per day. Approximately one in 285 children in the US will be diagnosed with cancer before their 20th birthday.
Children’s Cancer Research Fund is a national organization dedicated to curing childhood cancer by investing in the most effective research, collaborating with the most talented minds, inspiring and educating advocates worldwide to take action, and supporting families.
