June 7 will be this year's Cancer Walk and more. There will be a Children's Festival with kids' games, activities, cookie decorating, and an egg hunt. (The Easter egg hunt was rained out and we have lots of eggs!). The festival will be held from 4-6 at Mahoney State Park at the Turkey Shelter. Around 6 will be a free-will pulled pork meal, followed by our special cancer walk and memories.
Questions we've been asked -
*Do I have to walk, I have a hurt foot?. No, walking is not required.
*Is this just for ladies?? No, everyone is welcome and invited.
*Do I have to be on a team? No, again, everyone is welcome.
I've mentioned this before, but I heard about a young girl in her final stages of cancer telling her mom that she was ready to be rid of the pain, but she was scared that people would forget her. If you asked me what my #1 goal for this event is, I would say, "that we don't forget." Here and beyond, we do not forget.
I personally hope to see all of you there.
