Louisville to host cancer research walk

June 13, 2018 by  

The city of Louisville, Kentucky recently announced that it is set to host the 1st Annual Walk for Doc- Supporting Esophageal Cancer Research later this month.

The 1st Annual Walk for Doc- Supporting Esophageal Cancer Research is an event designed to raise awareness around esophageal cancer, and to help raise funds that go towards supporting the Salgi Esophageal Cancer Research Foundation and their mission to improve research and cancer prevention methods. Meryl Levine, a major advocate for esophageal cancer research, is the lead coordinator for this walk and will be in attendance to speak more about the cause and share her story.

The walk will be taking place this Saturday, June 16 from at 11:30 am at Sawyer Park on 3000 Freys Hill Road. Those who are interested in participating in the walk must pay a $25 registration fee on the day of the event at the park in the form of cash or a check. Children who are 12 years of age and under will be able to get into the event for free. The foundation running the event is also producing T-shirts with the Walk for Doc logo design for those who would like to purchase a souvenir for the event. These t-shirts can be purchased through the Bonfire website.
