About Spirit of Courage

The annual Spirit of Courage Gala honors cancer survivors with the Spirit of Courage Award and raises money for the Spirit of Courage Cancer Center Charitable Patient Care Fund. Spirit of Courage Award honorees this year are Donna Elliff, Deb Potter, Jake Powers and Kevin Rutland. Events in the past have included the celebration gala, auctions and a golf tournament.

Since 2003, Spirit of Courage events have raised nearly $2 million, with all proceeds going to the patient care fund. The fund provides assistance to uninsured and underinsured patients who need help covering expenses associated with cancer diagnoses and treatment.
