Virtual Fundraising Walk To Help Local People With Cancer

Cancer Services of Northeast Indiana is converting its inaugural Ribbon Walk to a virtual experience because of COVID-19.

The money raised through this event will help people in our community who have cancer. Cancer Services invites the community to help raise $80,000, which will help about 5,000 people in Northeast Indiana who are fighting cancer.

Despite COVID-19, there are many ways people can participate:

1. Register individually, create a team or join a team at Walkers who register and raise at least $35 by May 1 receive a commemorative Ribbon Walk t-shirt.

2. Once registered, begin fundraising to help local people with cancer. Get family and friends involved either by joining the team or donating to your fundraising goal.

3. On May 9, join us for a virtual kick-off celebration at 9 a.m. and then create your own walking challenge whether you walk on a treadmill or around the block. Use #CSNIRibbonWalk and let us know who you are honoring.
