About this Event

The Breanne Sleater Memorial Foundation, alongside the Rib Moutain Tap House, present the first annual Color Me For A Cure. This will be a fun evening of running or walking a path looping through the town of Rib Moutain and being covered in a rainbow of colors while learning a little bit about the deadly and aggressive disease, Adrenal Cortical Cancer, and raising money for the team at the University of Michigan Hospital, dedicatedly researching how to bring about a cure and treatment options for the ACC warriors currently fighting for their lives.

The run will end back at the Tap House, where local artists will entertain you with live music. There will be drinks and food as well as raffles and a game that guarantees players a bottle of wine (who wouldn’t want to play that?).

All of this is put on in memory of Breanne Sleater (Hanson) a member of the Wausau community since birth. Breanne bravely fought ACC for over a year of her too-short life and as lost to us at only age 24. Dr. Gary Hammer, at the University of Michigan Hosptial is the leading researcher on Adrenal Cortical Cancer, and was Breanne’s lead doctor during her battle. Every penny we raise through this event will go directly to Dr. Hammer’s team at the U of M to help fund further research on lifesaving and life-prolonging drugs to help others fighting ACC be able to get precious more time with their own loved ones. We hope that someday we will be able to see Dr. Hammer find a way to permanently prolong the lives of those battling this aggressive disease, and for now, we hope to help other mothers, fathers, sister, brothers, friends, and others that love someone fighting ACC to have more time to give and receive that love.

We hope you’ll join in the fun on September 14th, and make this first one a night to remember!

T-shirt and event information pickup will be available on September 13, 2019 from 4pm-8pm at McDonald’s on Rib Moutain Drive, and on September 14th, 2019 from 11am-1:30pm at Tap House in Rib Mountain.
