Local radio station selling tie-dyed shirts to raise money for cancer center


Every October, the Don and Dana Myers Cancer Center in Seymour and WJAA Radio 96.3 FM and its sponsors team up for a community fundraiser.

This year’s campaign is called “Faith, Hope, Love: Conquering Cancer,” and T-shirts featuring that slogan are being sold in the hopes of raising money to fight cancer.

Robert Becker, general manager of WJAA, and his staff generated the idea for the T-shirt fundraiser.

Becker is asking the community to wear the shirts Oct. 21 in solidarity for cancer awareness and to raise funds for the Don and Dana Myers Cancer Center.

The special day will be called “Wear Your Colors to Conquer Cancer Friday.” The tie-dye shirts help bring awareness about all forms of cancer and are available at sponsors across the area.

The price of the shirts are $10 each, and size XXL is $12, with $5 from every shirt being donated to the cancer center.
