Cancer Services of Northeast Indiana will host its annual fundraising walk, Lapper, on Saturday, May 19. After 9 years at Foster Park, the event will be moved to Cancer Services’ location in Brotherhood Office Park, 6316 Mutual Drive.
9:00 a.m. registration, 9:30 a.m. program, 10:00 a.m. walk begins
Lapper 2012 is a fundraiser designed to honor or memorialize those touched by cancer. When Lapper founder Jill Burnett first organized this event, she encouraged participants to test their own endurance and push past their comfort zone just as people with cancer do every day. That tradition continues, and each Lapper participant is encouraged to walk as many laps around Brotherhood Office Park as they can.
“The decision to move the walk from Foster Park to our location in the Brotherhood Office Park was a difficult one,” says Lapper committee chair Courtney Haslup. “We love the Foster Park neighborhood, but as our walk continues to grow, parking and space has become an issue. Hosting it at our facility will allow plenty of room for the event to grow and allows us to showcase our facility and programs.”
All proceeds from Lapper 2012 benefit Cancer Services of Northeast Indiana and help support programs for people with cancer in our community.
Cancer Services will host Survivors Day immediately following the Lapper on Saturday, May 19 at 11:00 a.m. This free celebration of life and survivorship will include food, fun, and games for the whole family.
