Logan County Cancer Society

Our mission is to provide financial assistance to residents of Logan County who have cancer or a cancer related illness, while promoting education in the detection and treatment of cancer.

Giving support

Your generous contribution will assist cancer sufferers with related expenses such as medications and supplies, wigs, and travel expenses. In some cases, food, utilities, and clothing needs are provided in emergency situations.

You can rest assured knowing your generous contribution remains right here in Logan County and benefits residents of this community. The Logan County Cancer Society, Inc. is in no way affiliated with the national association of the American Cancer Society.

  • Specific projects:
    • Doors of EnCOURAGEment.
      • One of the first signs of spring in Downtown Bellefontaine has become the beautiful art lining the streets through the Doors of EnCOURAGEment display. Individuals, businesses and organizations come together to sponsor, decorate and embellish doors to be auctioned off in late April.
      • Through this meaningful event, nearly 600 doors have been created resulting in over $300,000 benefitting our friends and neighbors through the Logan County Cancer Society.
    • Lights of Love Memory Trees.
      • Each holiday season, trees bursting with Lights of Love in honor or memory of loved ones illuminate the entry of Downtown Bellefontaine through the generous support of community members.
    • Sunflower Shuffle 4 Mile Walk/Run.
      • Please join us for the inaugural year of the Sunflower Shuffle to benefit the Logan County Cancer Society. With an event to fit most fitness levels, you can choose from a 4 mile Run/Walk event or a 1 mile fun run.
