St. Vincent Cancer Challenge Coming Up Sept. 16
More than 30,000 Hoosiers will be diagnosed with cancer this year. Join your friends and family to inspire hope in their lives at the St. Vincent Cancer Challenge in Zionsville’s beautiful Lions Park on Saturday, September 16th. The event features a 3-Mile Run/Walk and a 6-Mile Run/Walk, and 100 percent of proceeds benefit St. Vincent Cancer Care patients and their families.
This year’s St. Vincent Cancer Challenge fundraising goal is $200,000. Since 2009, nearly $2 million has been raised for St. Vincent cancer patients and their families thanks to the generous participants of the run/walk events. Funds raised have benefited St. Vincent Cancer Care programs and services, including the mobile cancer screening, art therapy services, survivorship programs, state-of-the-art equipment and more.
Turner Construction Company is the presenting sponsor for the event, and Pearson Automotive is serving as the packet pick-up sponsor. Packet pick-up will take place at the St. Vincent House, 2031 Dugan Drive in Indianapolis, on Friday, Sept. 15 from 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. For every short test drive taken in a Pearson Automotive vehicle during the Drive 4UR Community Event, $20 will be donated to the St. Vincent Cancer Challenge. In addition, American Senior Communities is the wellness tent sponsor, and DWA Healthcare, Indiana Members Credit Union and Monarch Beverage are matching fund sponsors of the event. This year’s honorary emcee is WTHR’s Julia Moffitt.
