A local family has turned the heartbreaking loss of a family member Into a fundraising effort to fight cancer.

The Birkmire family owns Birkmire Transportation Solutions in Fairview.

When they lost a dear family member to cancer in 2011 they decided to raise money for local cancer research. In June they held the Cruise- In For A Cause in memory of Sandy Birkmire.

Today they presented a check for 95 hundred dollars to the Erie Regional Cancer Center.

This is the second year the Cruise- In has raised money for charity.
