Loren Balkowitsch (Founder / Owner) was inspired to begin Give 5 while watching his sister-in-law battle breast cancer. Loren wanted to get off the sidelines and become more proactive in the fight against cancer. Slowly watching a loved one being taken away left him feeling helpless and frustrated. He wanted to help other families who are also dealing with the pain of losing someone that special.
Under the Golf Tournament link above you can read about the amazing event Give 5 supports every year, Loren also was a co-founder of the Volkowitsch Open. Loren is the VP of Fundraising on the Bismarck Cancer Center Foundation.
His favorite part of working with the BCCF is working with amazing people who always put others first. He enjoys watching the funds raised directly impact the patients supported by the foundation. Bismarck Cancer Center Foundation Loren also serves on the North Dakota State Commission for National and Community Service Board
