Jackets Against Cancer 5K Walk
Saturday, April 13 at 8:00am
Registration begins at 7:00am
Train Station Park, Denham Springs, LA 70726
Come walk with us to honor someone you know who has fought or is currently battling cancer. The proceeds from this walk will go directly to Denham Springs High School to fund the LeslieStrong Scholarship!! The LeslieStrong Scholarship was started in honor of, Leslie Molbert Dame, who passed away Thanksgiving night from her battle with breast cancer at the age of 28. She had just finished nursing school when she was diagnosed. She never let her cancer beat her spirit and she was always an inspiration to others who were going thru cancer treatment. The LeslieStrong Scholarship is awarded to a student who is enrolled in the CNA program who wants to pursue a degree in Nursing. Our hope is that the recipient will be able to continue Leslie's legacy of caring and compassion for others in their time of need, especially those fighting cancer. Please come out and join us for the first annual Jackets Against Cancer 5K Walk on April 13, 2013. We will start at the Train Station Park in downtown Denham Springs, LA. You can register when you get there!! If you cannot walk and would like to contribute to the LeslieStrong Scholarship, you can mail a check to: Jackets Against Cancer, P.O. Box 2011, Denham Springs, La. 70727. Please make out your check to DSHS and put "LeslieStrong Scholarship" on the memo line.
