Harvest for a Cure
A friend of mine made this video of some farmers in her hometown, doing what they call “Harvest for a Cure”. Glenn Bolander was having a hard time getting his crops out of the field because he was spending most of his time in the hospital with his wife, Carol, who has been battling breast cancer.
Nearly 100 volunteers came together to help the Bolander’s clear their crops. It brought a tear to my eye to see people pull together to help a friend going through a hard time. With 11 combines, 26 trucks, and 18 tractors and grain carts it took only 5 hours and twenty-one minutes to harvest 350 acres of corn! Simply amazing. But that’s what farming is all about.
