 11th Annual Coins for a Cause 5K

May 2020

9am – 12pm – 5th & Main in Seneca, Kansas

Coins for a Cause is a non-profit organization founded in 2009. The focus is to help cancer patients and their families by providing direct financial assistance.  Coins for a Cause was formed by 4 women who have dealt with cancer in their own families and saw a need to provide financial assistance for expenses incurred from surgery treatments, and related issues not covered by insurance. This 5K run is every Saturday of Memorial Day Weekend to raise funds for our neighbors in their fight against cancer.




Thirteen families benefited from funds in the first year, since that time  91 families have been assisted. The need remains and often increases each year and hopefully we can meet our goal to benefit each and every deserving cancer victim. If you have any questions, comments or know of a someone needing assistance, please contact either of the following board members.
