'Cancurables Fair Bear' design contest organized Perham's Kristin Stinar aid cancer research

It's not exactly cotton-candy and mini donut weather, but we're thinking ahead to warm weather and a favorite time of the year-- the State Fair.

The annual Cancurables Fair Bear Design Contest has been set. Each year, the Cancurables Foundation presents a new collectible Fair Bear at the MN State Fair, designed by a Minnesotan.

All of the proceeds from the sale of the bears at the State Fair go directly to cancer research. The Cancurables Foundation is an all-volunteer organization started by Emmy-Award Winning Reporter and News Anchor, Kristin Stinar after her diagnosis with ovarian cancer in 2005.
