Farm co-ops unite to fight cancer ‘cooperatively’

In 2009, three Ohio-based farm cooperatives planted the seed of a concept: work “cooperatively” to raise $50,000 for breast cancer research. Two additional cooperatives and a fleet of pink propane tankers later, “Fueling the Cure” has surpassed the $1 million mark. And it has no plans of stopping. Today, “Fueling the Cure” is a collaboration between four Ohio and one Indiana-based cooperatives: Heritage, United Landmark, Sunrise, Centerra and Premier-Ag. Proceeds go directly into the “Cooperatives for the Cure of Cancer” endowment fund established by the cooperatives in 2011 at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center.
