Twinkling Angels Golf Tournament
The Twinkling Angels Fund honors the short lives of Madison and Parker Thurner. Every year, the Thurner family hosts a golf tournament to raise money for the fund, and remember their children, who died in 2002.
Funds are distributed through the Mercy & Unity Hospitals Foundation and help support the people of Anoka County and surrounding communities. The hope is to provide comfort to children who are hospitalized and to families dealing with unfortunate circumstances, especially the loss of a child.
The 2012 golf tournament took place on May 24 at Majestic Oaks,in Ham Lake, Minnesota.
The 2011 golf tournament raised over $34,000. In past years, proceeds have helped families after the loss of a child, send kids to burn camp and provided funds for Sister Kenny Kids.

Lynnda Laubach Breast Cancer Awareness Ride
The annual motorcycle ride held each September begins at Zylstra Harley-Davidson in Elk River and concludes with a hog roast, music, raffles and live auction. The Grand Prize for the raffle each year is a Harley-Davidson motorcycle. This past year 160 riders took to the road and raised over $60,000.
All funds raised support individuals battling breast cancer. The funds are distributed through the cancer resource centers at Mercy and Unity Hospitals and directly support breast cancer patients and survivors (although individuals do not need to receive treatment at these hospitals to be considered).
