We are less than a month away from the 2018 Lapper and Survivors Day Celebration on May 12, 2018, and it is our hope you will  join us to honor and memorialize local people touched by cancer.

Where to park: 

Parking will be available throughout the Brotherhood Office Park. There will be parking coordinators and signage to help you find a spot!

How long is the walk:
