Sunrise is Fueling the Cure for Cancer Research

Fremont, Ohio – October 6, 2017 - In 2009, the Fueling the Cure initiative was established to help with the battle against cancer and Sunrise Cooperative, Inc. is lending a hand in the fight.
 
Fueling the Cure is a collaborative effort among five cooperatives across Ohio and Indiana, including Sunrise, United Landmark, Heritage Cooperative, Centerra Co-op and Premier Ag. Each cooperative involved has pledged to donate $1.00 per propane delivery stop on their route benefiting cancer research. Since the start of the campaign, a total of $980,763.48 has been donated to this cause.
 
At the 2017 Farm Science Review in London, Ohio, the Fueling the Care initiative presented a check for over $150,000 for efforts that were raised over the last year. All proceeds were donated to The Ohio State University Arthur G. James Comprehensive Cancer Center. Sunrise contributed $31,488 towards the overall donation that was presented. Representing Sunrise at the check presentation was Vice President of Energy, Jason Kamann, and Energy Solutions Advisor, Jodi Heitkamp.
 
“We will continue to be actively involved in this campaign and we are proud to invest in our community through the support of cancer research,” said Kamann. “This is a battle no one should face alone and we are willing to fight for a cure.”
