LAPPER TO HONOR THOSE TOUCHED BY CANCER

Cancer Services of Northeast Indiana will host its annual fundraising walk, Lapper, on Saturday, May 21, 2011, at Foster Park, located in southwest Fort Wayne.

Lapper 2011 is a fundraiser for Cancer Services designed to honor or memorialize those touched by cancer. When Lapper founder Jill Burnett first organized this event 9 years ago, she encouraged people to test their own endurance and push past their comfort zone just as people with cancer do every day. That tradition continues today, and each Lapper participant is encouraged to walk as many laps around the paved 2-mile trail at Foster Park as they can.

Bring a friend, form a team and help us raise money to provide support and services to people with cancer in our community. Our goal is to raise $60,000 at this year’s event. All proceeds benefit Cancer Services of Northeast Indiana and help support programs for people with cancer in our community.

(260) 484-9560 or arecker@cancer-services.org

Survivors Day

Cancer Services will host Survivors Day immediately following the Lapper at Foster Park on Saturday, May 21, at 11:00 a.m. This free celebration of life and survivorship will include food, fun, and games for the entire family.
