Proceeds from this years event are helping to raise money for The Madee Project. It’s aÂ wonderful non-profit that helps to provide support for pediatric cancer patients and their families in the Augusta county and surrounding areas. Not only that but it also helps to provide funding for research to help prevent pediatric cancer from affecting other kids.
Madee Nicole Boxler was a wonderful, caring young woman. She was a graduate of Fort Defiance High School here in Augusta County and double majored at Roanoke College in Roanoke VA. She was diagnosed with pediatic cancer at the age of 20 and inspired The MaDee Project with her determination. She was loved by many and cared for her friends and family deeply even while fighting to overcome her illness. SheÂ started writingÂ Dancing in the Rain from her hospital room and was not able to finish it. It was her story about her fight.
