Inspired by community leader and cancer survivor; Steve Gavers, the Gavers Community Cancer Foundation was founded 21 years ago to make a difference in the fight against cancer.

The Barndance is a hallmark annual community event in McHenry County with a team consisting of 100% volunteers that has raised more than $8 million in the fight against cancer. Dubbed the “Best 7 Hours of Summer,” the event celebrates survivorship and brings the community together to support a common cause.

Since 2000, the Foundation has raised over $8.3 Million dollars benefiting Family Health Partnership Clinic, Northwestern Medicine, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, Luries Children’s Hospital, The Testicular Cancer Foundation and the Brian Piccolo Cancer Research Fund at Rush University Medical Center.
