Providing pre-paid fuel cards to patients in rural communities surrounding Missoula who are fighting cancer or other treatment-intensive conditions. Because fighting an illness is enough of a burden– fueling a vehicle to travel to and from medical appointments shouldn’t be an extra burden.
 

Fuel cards are purchased with funds raised thru the Fuel the Fight 5k and 1 mile Fun Run that occurs the first weekend of October at Frenchtown Pond State Park, in Frenchtown, MT. One hundred percent of registration fees go towards the purchase of fuel cards. Additional donations are also welcome.

REGISTER

SATURDAY, SEPT 30th at 10 am at Frenchtown Pond State Park. 5k or 1 mile Fun Run.

Runners and walkers of all ages and abilities are welcome!  Sorry, no dogs allowed in the park.

Snacks, music, and a bouncy house for kids will be at the finish line.

$15 for adults and teens, $5 for kids 12 and under through Sept. 23rd, $20 for adults and  $10 for kids to register on the day of the event.

DONATE

If you can’t make the run, or if you want to give extra.  Your donations are tax deductible, and 100% will go directly towards the purchase of fuel cards.

The first Fuel the Fight 5k & Fun Run was held in October, 2016. That event raised about $2,200, which turned into 22 fuel cards that were given to patients in our community like:

 A lady in Frenchtown who was traveling 40 miles a day round-trip into Missoula five days per week for 7 weeks as she received radiation treatment for breast cancer

A family from Missoula whose toddler is battling brain cancer in a Seattle hospital, and the father is driving back and forth on the weekends after working all week in Missoula

A gentleman from the Frenchtown area who was driving to Seattle every 3 weeks for pancreas treatments, after spending nearly a month there in the ICU
 
An elderly couple who both are fighting cancer at the same time living over 2 hours from their treatments.
 
A woman whose daughter travels over three hours to help her mom get treatment. They had just prayed that week that God would miraculously provide for their fuel needs.
 
A woman who not only travels over an hour for treatment each week, had car mechanical issues and had no idea how to afford the repairs and fuel.
