Kicking Cancer, Columbus - Thank You!
We had a great time on Saturday, June 22nd for Kicking Cancer at Otterbein University!
Every Step Counts, Every Lap Counts - we had a great walk a thon with 150 laps completed, which means over 35 miles - that's over 70,000 steps in the right direction!
Thank you to all of our little movers, their families and all of our movers for joining us and making it such a fun event! Thank you to everyone for your help - without your generous support none of this would be possible! ,
Special thanks to: Otterbein University, specifically Dawn Stewart, Kathy Mazza, Jason Griffiths, Brandon Koons, Chad Simkins, Sarah Bedell, Hannah Dobrinick & the Men's & Women's Soccer Teams
Dr. Don Benson & OSUCCC-James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute

Congratulations to our raffle winners, and thank you to everyone who 'Accepted the Challenge'!
We asked you to lace 'em up & to bring the fight to cancer by walking/running/pushing a stroller around the track at Memorial Stadium during camp. A raffle ticket was earned for every lap walked, congrats to our winners!
Every step you take is a step in the right direction!
