Crawl To Cure Cancer


Crawl to Cure Cancer

Again, in my strolls around the net I came across this great Jeep 4-wheeling team (With the help of following http://www.Infamous4x4.com link) and their valiant effort to aid in finding a cure for cancer – Crawl to Cure Cancer. A team member was personally affected by the turmoil and devastating destruction cancer leaves in its trails. Unfortunately, it is a story too many people can tell. Too many people can say they know of someone who is battling this disease, lost a loved one to it, or have or are fighting it themselves. It is a courageous fight. Because I feel it is such a worthy cause and a great group of people helping to fight for a cure I wanted to share Crawl to Cure Cancer with you all to help spread the word. Here is more about this great group of Jeepers.


“My team and I have been competing in the professional rock crawling series called WeRock since 2005. We travel the mid-west and east coast attending rock crawling competitions and Jeep Shows. I am the only female driver in the stock modified class and the Jeep was bright green, both factors into the attention we draw at these events.

In June of 2008, I lost my mother to a brief battle with colon and liver cancer. My mom was one of my biggest fans and a big fan to the world of rock crawling and motorsports. I have been thinking of ways to hold an off road event or something in my mom’s memory, when the idea was presented to me to paint my competition jeep pink and raise money for cancer research. And thus, Crawl to Cure Cancer was born.”

Last year this group raised $15,000 dollars that was donated to the American Cancer Society. Maybe with more awareness they will be able to double that total or more. You can visit their website at Crawl to Cure Cancer and see where they will be next.

  1. I recently lost my cousin, who was also a good friend, to brain cancer. She was only 33 and much too young to have suffered the way she did. I did not participate in this event last year, but you can bet your bottom dollar we’ll be attending this one. When I leave your site I’ll be heading to theirs to find out the dates and details so we can make our plans. Thank you so much for all the wonderful things you include on your site.

  2. I can think of no better reason to get behind the wheel and take off. Cancer is a devastating disease, affecting not only the person who has it but all of their family and friends. Kudo’s to all who came up with the idea, took it and ran with it and those who will participate.

  3. I’ve lost my Mom and one of my sisters to cancer so you better believe I’ll be supporting this event. It’s a cruel disease that strikes randomly. It has no boundaries and is devastating for all involved.

  5. My husband and I are involved in several efforts in the fight against cancer. We lost our son right before his 4th birthday. No parent should have to bury their child. I know a cure is possible, and we want to do all we can to support the find of a cure. This is just one of many that we feel the need to support.

  6. I lost 3 family members to cancer in my lifetime. I’m only 30. It’s important to me that a cure be found and I will support this event. It’s a way to have fun and support a cure at the same time.
