Cruise for a Cause Made it's Largest Ever Donation in 2021!
Cruise for a Cause surpassed previous year's donations beyond all expectations in 2021, with a total donation of $200,000. We proudly presented checks of $175,000 and $25,000 to Marshfield Clinic Health System Foundation to support cancer research and UW Carbone Cancer Center, respectively.
Dan Neve has always been a Mustang enthusiast - it was when he had seen the new 2010 Shelby GT500 he knew that he wanted one to add to his collection. Then life happened when Dan's mother and wife were diagnosed with breast cancer about one month apart. It was as if the Ford has a better Idea light bulb went on and he knew that he had to do something. So early in 2010 while his wife was going through surgerys, Dan purchased his Mustang Shelby GT 500 and decided to use it to help make a difference and raise awareness.
Asking for donations and sponsorships he was able to raise $10,000 that first (and he thought only) year of fundraising. But once Ford had asked him to display the car at SEMA things changed (for the good) and Cruise for a Cause and our 501c 3 non profit began.
Dan was asked to speak at a Susan G Komen event and was unsure about what to say. But what came to mind was a girl that had gone to school with him who had polio. Dan mentioned how today he knew of no one with polio and the HOPE was that one day either our children or grandchildren can say the same about cancer "We knew individuals with cancer but today we know of no one"!
Dan travels across the country to as many automotive events as he can with his cars asking for support. With no paid employees, the goal is to raise as much awareness and funds to support cancer research as possible. Research is the key to beating this terrible disease that impacts far too many of us. With your support - new treatments and therapeutics will be developed and one day a cure!
