Every year, the Avera Race brings together family, friends, cancer survivors and others to race for a common goal, enhance cancer care for people right here in Sioux Falls and surrounding communities. Every penny stays local to help your families, friends and neighbors get the treatment and support they need.
The Avera Cancer Institute continues to enhance the lives of cancer patients and their families through YOUR generous support and participation in the Avera Race. The 2016 Avera Race Against Breast Cancer marks its 28th year as Avera McKennan and the Avera Cancer Institute continue their ongoing commitment to providing all women in our community with the most advanced technology and compassionate care available in their fight against breast cancer.
Not only do the employees, spouses and kids from Thompson Electric – Sioux Falls show their support by being a part of the 5,200 runners/walkers, that helped raise $380,000 to benefit the Avera Cancer Institute, Thompson Electric also donated all the material and labor to provide the temporary power for the event. No small feat considering we had to remove and reinstall a light pole at the events starting area.
At the end of the day, the Thompson team not only supported a great cause, they also had a lot of fun.
