THANKS to all Catch-A-Cure Participants and Volunteers!
Money raised for Gundersen Lutheran Medical Foundation: ~$3,500
What is Catch-A-Cure?
Catch-A-Cure is a Lung Cancer Awareness Fundraiser developed by University of Wisconsin - La Crosse Students with support from Gundersen Lutheran. It will be an Ice Fishing Tournament and a Snow Football Tournament with many other "Family Fun" activities.
What is our objective with this Fundraiser?
Major advances have been made within the medical field in regards to medical oncology/cancer research, but Lung Cancer remains the leading cause of cancer death in the United States. This fundraiser is being put on to raise money for Lung Cancer research at Gundersen Lutheran and Lung Cancer awareness in La Crosse and surrounding communities. Here's a few reasons why we became motivated:
1. Lung cancer kills more individuals than Breast, Prostate, Liver, Colorectal, and Ovarian Cancer COMBINED.
2. Only 5% of all government funding for cancer research is given for Lung Cancer.
Who is organizing this event?
Over 15 clubs on the UW-La Crosse campus are assisting with planning/organization of the event. We would also like to thank Gundersen Lutheran, the Oncology Research Staff, and the Lung Cancer Awareness Committee for helping out with many of the organizational aspects of this event.

How much does it cost to enter?
