“We are pleased to have Sauchuk Farm host this event,” said MFBF President, Ed Davidian, who farms in Northborough. “Cancer is a terrible disease that does not discriminate. By hosting a campout like this one, we are working to keep our consumers and their families healthy, just like we do every day of the year when we provide food for them.”
If a family attends these events, they are not required to campout. A family can come for the afternoon and stay for as long as they want. If a family chooses to campout, MFBF asks that they make plans to bring their own tent and camping supplies.
Make plans to attend a kid’s fair and campout on June 10-11, 2017, at Sauchuk Farm in Plympton to help fight the battle against cancer. The event at Sauchuk Farm, known as Camping for a Cure, will be a fundraiser for Massachusetts Farm Bureau Federation’s Pan-Mass Challenge (PMC) team.
The PMC is a bike-a-thon that brings together thousands of impassioned cyclists, committed volunteers, generous donors and dedicated corporate sponsors to provide the resources necessary to discover cures for all types of cancer. Currently, five farmers and open space supporters are set to ride more than 750 combine for MFBF and for those who can’t on Aug. 5 & 6, 2017.
All the funds raised for the PMC will go to cancer research through the Dana-Faber Cancer Research Institution and the Jimmy Fund. For more information on the PMC, please visit www.pmc.org.
To help the MFBF team generate funds, Sauchuk Farm is one of five farms across the Commonwealth set to host Camping for a Cure on June 10-11, 2017.
At the Camping for a Cure event, young families will have the opportunity to experience farm life. Sauchuk Farm will host a children’s fair during the afternoon of June 10, during which cow train rides, hay wagon rides, bouncing pillows, cornhole toss, a barnyard ball zone and tug o’ war will be held. After a day full of these terrific activities, a camp-out will be held in the evening where a movie will be shown.
The families who attend this event will leave the campsite with a stronger relationship with their food. They will get to meet and talk with Scott Sauchuk who owns and operates Sauchuk Farm, a 150-acre vegetable farm.
The children’s fair will run from 3 p.m. - 7 p.m. on June 10 and the campout will continue until 9 a.m. on June 11. All of these events will be held at 200 Center Street in Plympton.
