One of the things that we’re so proud to share with small towns is a strong sense of community spirit and mutual support, through the good times and the bad. Every year, millions of Americans struggle with cancer. Associated costs for treatment, like hospital stays, transportation, and other costs can become nearly as overwhelming as the illness itself.
Walk-A-Thon for health provides a path to support neighbors with cancer, raising funds Saturday August 11, 2012 to support Gove and Trego County residents who have been diagnosed with cancer.
The Walk-A-Thon will take place Saturday August 11, 2012 from 5:30 PM until 11:30 PM. The Walk-A-Thon is currently seeking sponsors for the event. In 2011, the charity fundraiser was able to raise more than $33,000 that stayed locally to help individuals battling cancer and was able to raise another $10,000 that went to fund cancer charities.
This year, the Walk-A-Thon for health plans to donate proceeds to Walk-A-Thon for Health cancer patients, Ronald McDonald/Other Designated Hospital Stays, KU Med-Center cancer research, KU Med Center heart research, Special Olympics (local people), Child Passenger Safety (local children).
Cash donations or in-kind donations to support the 2012 Walk-A-Thon for health are appreciated. Contact Kay Goetz for more information.
