“Unfortunately almost everybody knows or is related to somebody that has or had cancer. Our employees and our customers can relate to this, and that’s why this is a really good event,” said Marc Blevins, the sales manager at Blevins Bros. in Ogdensburg. “Just as much as cancer may have a negative impact on so many lives, donating money to help fight cancer and help the families that are going through this can have that much of a positive impact.”
Marc came up with the idea for Drive Out Cancer seven years ago. When the fundraiser started, the proceeds were donated to Coaches vs. Cancer the first year. Then, Blevins decided to partner with Jules of Life for the second year, and they donated to the organization ever since.
