The American Cancer Society gratefully acknowledges the outstanding contributions of Treviso Bay.

The community recently celebrated the Treviso Bay “Week of Giving,” raising over $175K for Making Strides Against Breast Cancer, a signature fundraising movement of the American Cancer Society.

Over the past eight years, Treviso Bay has raised over $500K. It all began as an opportunity to support a cause that was very near and dear to the heart of Treviso Bay resident Kathleen Christiansen, a breast cancer survivor.

This year, Treviso Bay is being honored with the ACS Hero of Research Award which gives them the opportunity to name an existing post-doctoral fellowship research grant in honor of their team.

This named grant will be active for three years, funding research that will save lives and potentially find a cure. ACS thanks Treviso Bay for their generosity, dedication, and commitment to Making Strides Against Breast Cancer.
