Our spotlight Community Partner for July is Austin Crawl for Cancer!

Austin Crawl for Cancer and Hospice Austin forged their partnership many years ago when the group was seeking a local nonprofit to be their beneficiary. The Crawl has a long storied history raising funds for those affected by cancer and having fun doing it! Started in Kansas City, the Crawl came to Austin in 2008.

Crawl for Cancer is an event where participants go to bars/restaurants in a pre-planned order to partake in social networking and ice-cold, frothy beverages. No actual crawling is required.

In 2016, Crawl for Cancer raised over $8500 for Hospice Austin. This support helps provide medical care to everyone who needs it, regardless of the complexity of their illness, or their ability to pay. It also supports Hospice Austin’s Camp Brave Heart, a summer camp for children grieving the loss of a loved one. Last year because of amazing supporters like the Crawl, Hospice Austin was able to send 100 kids to camp free of charge. This year’s event was held on June 24th, and Hospice Austin is honored to again be a recipient of their support!

If you missed all the fun this year, mark your calendars for the 2018 Crawl for Cancer!
