GREEN BAY - The fight against cancer got a $99,000 infusion Tuesday at Lambeau Field.
Checks were presented to six local cancer support organizations from the Jerry Parins Cruise for Cancer.
Parins is a cancer survivor, a former police officer and the former security director for the Green Bay Packers.
The money was raised by motorcyclists as they rode through area communities in the 2012 Cruise for Cancer.
Those who received the checks say the money will be put to good use.
"This is a great way for us to supplement all of the other generous donations that we have," said Ali Knight, St. Mary's Hospital. "We're very very honored to be part of this program again."
