We are so excited about the Village Walk for Cancer Research this year. Plan on joining us for our celebration of 15 years of walking and raising money for the Winthrop P. Rockefeller Cancer Institute. You can help make a difference in by walking, donating items/services and or becoming a sponsor.
Cancer is one disease that doesn't discriminate and takes on hundreds of forms which makes finding a cure so difficult. We need to look at each cancer to truly understand it and deal with it. Cancer cannot be eradicated by any single advancement. Be a part of making this change happen.
On June 29, Vice-President Joe Biden is convening a Cancer Moonshot Summit in Little Rock at the UAMS Cancer Institute. This is one of many summits that are being help throughout the United States. Researchers, doctors, nurses, advocates, survivors and others will all convene under the national charge to double the rate of progress toward a cure. You are invited and encouraged to attend all or part of the summit. Registration starts at noon on Wednesday, June 29th on the 10th floor of the Cancer Institute located at 4018 W. Capitol Ave., Little Rock. Parking is available in Parking Deck 3. Remember to present your parking ticket at the registration table for validation. The first 100 attendees will be served lunch. Pre-registration isn't required.
The 2016 Village Walk for cancer Research is set to begin at 7:30 am on Saturday, September 24th on the grounds of the Balboa Pavilion, 476 Ponce de Leon Drive. You will find both sponsorship and registration forms for the walk on our website. You can also register online, just click on the online registration link. Our goal this year is to raise $50,000 for the Bone Marrow Transplant Program. Participants will be able to remember and honor those who have lost their lives to this disease, while also celebrating the lives of the cancer survivors.
