PUBLIC FORUM: Letters for June 3, 2014

Raising money to finda cure for cancer

The Cass and Fulton County Extension Homemakers hosted a 5K Run/Fun Walk May 17th benefiting the Purdue Cancer Research Endowment Fund. This funds research for cures for all kinds of cancers. It was a great day for a run/walk. The community’s response exceeded our expectations. Many walked or ran supporting and encouraging a family member, friend, or colleague who is battling cancer. Our prayers will continue to be with each of them. Others walked remembering those who lost their battle with cancer; while others celebrated with survivors.

We extend a “Thank you” to our sponsors and those who made donations: Memorial Hospital Foundation, Springcreek Landscaping & Nursery, Community State Bank, Home Preservation Extension Homemakers Club, Kevin Scott & Sons Bulldozing & Excavating, Indian Trail Wines, Ad Valorem Solutions, Paschen Farms Meat, The Old Mill General Store & Pizzeria, Drs. Price & Shepler Family Eye Care, Club Kokomo Roadrunners, Moss Fertilizer Service, Busy Bells Extension Homemakers Club, Farm Credit Mid-America Rochester, Public Risk Underwriters of Indiana, George & Beverly Hapner, Janet McCauley, Images Styling Salon, Shelly Sarver, Martins’ Supermarket, Team Pride Athletics, Robert & Darlene Williams, Happy Burger, Brooke Griffith, English family, and Rhenda Acton.

We would also like to thank Logansport Memorial Hospital for the use of River Bluff Trail, the Cass & Fulton County Extension staff, the committee; Barb Troyer, Amanda Cosby, and Rhenda Acton; and the many extension homemakers who helped race day and made cookies.

But most of all we thank all of those who participated. There were 250 walkers and runners present and we raised $5,226.50 for Purdue Cancer Research. We met and exceeded the Indiana Extension Homemakers’ goal of $100,000 to be raised by June 1. The road to find a cure for cancer is long, but with everyone’s help hopefully we will reach the destination sooner.
