The Curing Cancer Charity Challenge is an annual golf tournament, held each fall at Providence Golf Club in Davenport, FL.

“We used to hold all sorts of fundraisers throughout the year to raise money for the American Cancer Society, some definitely more successful than others,” Sue said. “We started trying to brainstorm as to what we could do to turn those into one big fundraiser. That’s when the Curing Cancer Charity Challenge golf tournament was born.”

The 2019 event marks the nineth year for the annual event, which draws golfers and sponsors from several states, as customers and vendors for Fellows Trucking Group, to support the family’s efforts. The 2018 effort tallied a $25,000 donation to the American Cancer Society for the fight against cancer.  Over the past eight years, Davenport Fights Back has raised over $100,000 for the fight against cancer.

“Nearly every family has been hit by cancer,” said event co-coordinator and Fellows granddaughter Kristina Drexler. “Every person knows somebody who has been affected by this horrible disease. That’s why we’re


diligent in our fundraising efforts for the American Cancer Society – it’s our way to fight back.”

This year’s event is expected to reach capacity, so participants are encouraged to register early.

“Every dollar counts – every dollar matters,” Drexler said. “We’ve seen the dollars that the American Cancer Society receives at work. Research matters. Today, cancer patients can fight back; that wasn’t always the case. And one day, a cure will be found. But until that day, families like ours, and companies like ours, have to remain committed to raising the dollars to fund the research to make the cure not just a possibility, but a reality.”
