Every Tuesday in April The Blackstone Meatball will be donated 10% of their sales to Wear Yellow Nebraska.
More about the charitable cause — Wear Yellow Nebraska’s purpose from the very beginning was to bring people passionate about cycling together to celebrate life and fight cancer. Their goal is to get fellow Nebraskans to and from treatment at no charge.
The local Wear Yellow Ride was organized by Mike and Stacy Buckley in 2003 as a way to rally the Omaha community in riding for a good cause: their entry into the prestigious Austin LIVESTRONG Challenge.
As passion for the cause grew and more people wanted to get involved, the group’s focus started to shift inwards, and they made the decision to form a nonprofit organization and keep the funds from the annual event in Nebraska to support cancer survivors in our own community.
Wear Yellow Nebraska officially became a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization in 2009 with a clear focus on niche initiatives that offered cancer survivors support in ways that weren’t being addressed and for people who would otherwise fall through the cracks, truly caring for an individual’s special circumstances.
To sustain their mission, they network with local donors, corporate sponsors, riders, walkers and runners, survivors, business partners, and volunteers to continue growing their events to fund all of their initiatives.
