Walk for Cancer

A great group of local residents took part this past Saturday in a morning, “Walk for Cancer,” held in Nevada. The group departed on their journey from the 4-H horse arena, and took this picture, with the fitting background of the Story County Responders Care pink fire truck. Mary Jo Kellogg of Nevada said the local walk, held on the same day as “Walk for the Cure” in Des Moines, was started about seven years ago, so local residents, who couldn’t travel to Des Moines, could still do something to support their cancer causes. Each person who takes part in the Nevada walk write a check to the cancer organization of their choice, and Kellogg distributes those checks to the agencies.
