With bittersweet feelings and tremendous gratitude for our amazing supporters, the MTH Board recently decided that it was time to close the Foundation in October, 2018. The August 3rd and 4th, 2018, Golf Tournament and Mary Mile/5K Run will be our final fundraising events.
The last 10 years have been a humbling and rewarding experience for all of us at the Foundation as we witnessed the incredible generosity of our families, friends and strangers. We set out to honor the memory of our sister, wife, aunt, and friend, Mary Terese Hartzheim, and we believe we’ve accomplished our goal. During it’s existence, the MTH Foundation raised over $334,000. We’ve funded more than $165,000 in cancer research projects; more than $78,000 in scholarships at Lakeland Union High School, and more than $80,000 in cancer care programs in the greater Minocqua, WI community and beyond.
While the Foundation will be discontinued, the legacy of Mary Terese Hartzheim will live on through the caring community we’ve created. Mary touched each of us in a unique way and she remains in all of our hearts.
With thanks and love,
MTH Board of Directors
