During his battle with cancer, our good friend Ben Cushing founded a non-profit organization for hepatosplenic t-cell lymphoma research. While he may have lost his own battle earlier this month, his legacy will live on as we continue to fund research and raise awareness. Please help us take Bens foundation to the next level by contributing what you can. We need your help for a special event during the WSU vs. Stanford game on November 4th. 

Our Plan:
During the football game we hope to have everyone in the stands wearing green wrist bands that have the name of the foundation on it. There will be a moment of silence where everyone holds their bands to the sky. In the week prior to the event we will gather up volunteers and set up booths throughout the WSU campus stocked with these bands. We will hand out the bands and recommend a five-dollar donation towards research. It would be a blessing to have some help covering the up front cost of buying the wrist bands. We hope to raise about 5,250 dollars for over 30,000 wrist bands. If we happen to raise more than this I will put the Money directly in the Cush it to the limit research fund. The nation wide publicity of the game will really help Ben's foundation. We are hoping this game will provide a large sum of money for research to help cure this terrible disease.
