The Bonnie Wells Wilson Mobile Mammography Program, or Bonnie's Bus, travels to all areas in West Virginia to help women check for breast cancer, and that uses up a lot of gas.

The program is up for a Fueling Good gift card for $5,000 from CITGO.

That would pay for about one quarter of the visits Bonnie's Bus makes in a year.

"We go all over West Virginia and some of our trips are over night. And the bus when we're out has to be running the whole time. The generator has to run to keep the mammography equipment warm. So gasoline is one of our big expenses," said Sarah Jane Gainor, the Bonnie's Bus Program Director.

There are also other ways to help out including its fundraiser Sunday at the WVU basketball practice facility.

The fundraiser starts at 3 p.m. and it tours the basketball practice facility.

Entry is $5 and includes raffles and VIP seating at the 4 p.m. basketball game.
