Spirit of Courage

The Spirit of Courage Celebrity Weekend events include a golf tournament, dinner and gala, and Texas Hold 'Em poker tournament. Each year we honor individuals who have had a cancer diagnosis to come and share their amazing stories. We are also joined each year by local and national sports and television celebrities who add a little excitement and humor to the event!

Since 2003, our Spirit of Courage events have raised a total of $1,597,000. One hundred percent of those dollars have been donated to the Spirit of Courage Cancer Center Charitable Patient Care Fund, providing assistance to uninsured and underinsured patients who need help covering expenses associated with diagnosis and treatment of cancer. This fund assists patients by paying for medications, treatments, and deductibles as well as everyday living expenses such as groceries, rent, and gas. Without this type of help, these vulnerable members of our community would simply forgo treatment and/or medications.
