Save the Date- 9th Annual Lapper

We will host our 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.

Online registration will be available soon. Walkers who register by May 1 and raise a minimum of $25 will receive a tee shirt. Water and fresh fruit will be provided and the walk will take place, rain or shine.
