Our September and October Share the plate recipient is Wear Yellow Nebraska. Wear Yellow Nebraska brings people passionate about cycling together to celebrate life and fight cancer. The Omaha Wear Yellow Ride was organized in 2003 to ride and raise money for the LIVESTRONG Challenge. They now support local cancer survivors with a focus on support for people who would otherwise fall through the cracks.
One example is free cab rides for cancer patients in Omaha. Access to rides to and from treatment are essential because patients are in a weakened state and often unable to drive themselves, which also leaves them vulnerable to lapses in vital medical care. Even if patients have family and friends who can help, they aren’t always available. Since 2012, Wear Yellow Nebraska has provided over 7,800 rides to and from treatment for our fellow Nebraskan’s in the fight against cancer. All donations stay in Nebraska. Click here for more info.
Please give generously to September and October’s Share the Plate offering to support Wear Yellow Nebraska and our church.
