NORTHAMPTON, MA – WRSI’s Monte Belmonte has organized the ninth annual Cancer Connection Campout, being held in Downtown Northampton on the Old Courthouse lawn. Students from HEC Academy in Northampton raised funds and made personal donations to support this Cancer Connection fundraiser, as part of their community service focus.
Collaborative for Educational Services (CES) Employee Erin MacEachen Travis camped out again this year to raise funds supporting Cancer Connection’s programs and services. This year, the fundraiser began on Wednesday March 4th, earlier, colder and snowier than 2014’s event. Monty and his team raised $60,000, all thankful that the funds were raised before a second night of camping on top of the snow!
