Cancer Services seeks T-shirt designer for Lapper event

Cancer Services seeks T-shirt design submissions for its annual Lapper and Survivors Day fundraiser and celebration. Lapper and Survivors Day is an annual fundraising walk and celebration held at Brotherhood Place Office Park to support those affected by cancer in northeast Indiana. People are encouraged to bring a friend, form a team and walk as many laps as they can. This year’s event will take place on Saturday, May 18. Cancer Services has sponsored the official local celebration of National Cancer Survivors Day since its inception. It is a celebration of life for all those who have survived cancer. Survivors include people who have been affected by the cancer diagnosis, like family members and friends.
