In 2014, Ralph Olney was given a 17 percent chance of survival after being diagnosed with leukemia. He underwent treatment at the Wilmot Cancer Center, and today he's doing well and spreading the message about the incredible work being done at Wilmot and how it saved his life.
Ralph is member of Wilmot's Advisory Board, and he volunteers to raise money for the Wilmot Warrior Walk annually. To date, the Warrior Walk has raised more than $729,000. The goal this year is to raise $100,000.
So far, Ralph's team has raised over $200,000, and the cancer institute has leveraged that into $11 million in grants. "A dollar that someone donates is 45 times more important than they think," says Olney.
It's free to register for the Warrior Walk, but donations are always welcome. The event will happen virtually this year so participants can stay safe and maintain social distancing. To register, donate, and learn more about the walk, click here.
