On Saturday, October 13, 2018, hundreds of local residents and members of the lung cancer community will hit the pavement for a three-mile or 1-mile walk around Slater Memorial Park, all in an effort to help raise lung cancer awareness and increase research funding for this deadly disease.

The event begins at 8:30am with welcome comments and fundraising awards followed by the walk portion of the event at 8:45am.
