Just as they’ve done for a number of years now, a group of local residents will gather on Saturday, Oct. 27, and walk for the cure right here in town. Those who would like to take part locally are asked to meet at the fairgrounds in Nevada, by the horse arena, where the walk will start at 9 a.m.

Donations, which are asked to be made by check, can be directed to your favorite charity, such as Bliss Cancer Center, Susan G. Komen, Israel Hospice House, Childhood Awareness Against Cancer, American Cancer Society, etc. Those checks will be distributed to the charities by Mary Jo Kellogg.

If you have questions about making a donation or about the walk itself, please contact Kellogg at: 515-382-2350 (home) or 515-291-0981 (cell).
