Walk of Hope to be SaturdayThe sixth annual Lawrence County Walk of Hope will be held Saturday at 9 a.m. and will be held at Stewart Park. Registration will begin at 8 a.m., and walkers are encouraged to meet at the pavilion where there will be a registration table to sign in.
Lawrence County Walk of Hope is a local organization made up of volunteers who work to raise awareness and money for cancer patients in Lawrence County. The majority of funds raised go to Lawrence County cancer patients, with a percentage donated to the American Cancer Society to fund cancer research.
Co-founders of the organization are Claudia Wheeless and Carolyn Fowler. Residents of Lawrence County are asked to get in touch with Walk of Hope volunteers with information concerning cancer patients to better help aid those patients.
Everyone is invited to walk in the event. There will be new T-shirts for this year's walk. For more information call Carolyn at 886-7602 or Claudia at 886-7464.
