LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - The Community Cancer Network (CCN) will hold its third annual "Carry the Torch Walk" on Sunday, Sept. 29. It's a way to show those battling cancer they are not alone.
Lori Miller, CCN outreach coordinator and Phalon Ervin, a local cancer survivor who took advantage of the services provided by CCN, stopped by News 18 This Morning on Tuesday to talk about the walk and the help CCN provides cancer patients in the Greater Lafayette Area.
The non-profit organization supports the non-medical needs of patients. That can include counseling, food and even transportation to and from appointments.
Donations are always appreciated and the organization is inviting everyone to "Carry the Torch" and participate in the 2.5 mile awareness walk through Lafayette and West Lafayette. Registration and check-in begins at 1 p.m. in Riehle Plaza on Sunday, Sept. 29. The walk begins at 3 p.m. followed by a big celebration at 4 p.m. with free food, live music and other entertainment. Those planning to participate are encouraged to collect donations to benefit CCN.
More information can be found on the CCN website.
