October 2015,

14th Annual Village Walk for Cancer Research is a Success!

Thank you for supporting the 14th Annual Village Walk for Cancer Research. On Saturday, September 26, over 350 walkers met at the Cortez Pavilion for a morning of fun, music, food and walking! We raised over $46,000 for the Winthrop P. Rockefeller Cancer Institute Foundation Fund at UAMS. This money will be used for lung cancer research. Since 2002, we have raised over $376,000 for cancer research. We are grateful for the dedication and support that all of our sponsors, donors, walkers and the community have shown to this event each year. Pictures from the walk will be posted on the website.

Our planning committee is meeting on Thursday, October 15th to talk about what went well and areas we need to look at for next year. So, save the date, Saturday, September 24, 2016 for the 15th Annual Village Walk for Cancer Research!

Working together, we are making a difference and are looking forward to a future without cancer! Thank you for another successful year.
