Stockman Bank employer Renae Bouma was on hand to address city council members about a fund-raiser for cancer.
A team of employees are taking part in the Relay for Life event in Cut Bank in August. “We’ve organized a team to participate in the Relay as our effort to make strides toward the fight against cancer,” she said.
She went on to explain that “Cancer awareness ribbons” are recognized by all and there are different colors for nearly every type of cancer.
The Stockman team has selected three colors to show and offer to individuals and businesses who would like to show their support in the cancer fight.
For $10 each, “We would like to offer to paint a ribbon on business entry ways, residential driveways and sidewalks or any other flat surface they might request.”
