Jerry Parins Cruise for Cancer makes record breaking donation

By NBC26 Staff. CREATED Jun 24, 2014

Green Bay, WI -- The Jerry Parins Cruise for Cancer has made a record breaking donation. Last year's ride collected $104,000. On Tuesday, seven support organizations received a portion of the money. Parins was on hand for the check presentations. He knows how the donations can help cancer patients in our area, because he fought the disease himself. 

"I also have an understanding of how devastating cancer is initially when you're told about it., but once you learn what you have to do and get a formula to fight it, you get stronger and that's all part of this as well," said Parins.   

Parins is a former Director of Security for the Packers. He formed the ride after his cancer diagnosis in 2003.
