Cancer Support Network sets walk

Posted on Wednesday, August 27, 2014 at 3:01 pm

Cancer has impacted the lives of countless families in Bedford, Coffee, Franklin, Grundy, Marion, Lincoln, Moore, and Warren counties during the past 21 years. During that time the Multi-County Cancer Support Network (MCCSN) and its team of volunteers have stepped up to help those families.

Financial, educational, and emotional support are the core products MCCSN provides to those afflicted in the eight county Middle Tennessee area.

Financial assistance to the families comes from local donors and fundraisers, so it makes sense that it is distributed to only local families in need. MCCSN’s primary annual fundraiser is the Walk-A-Thon, which will be held at the football stadium at 839 Dinah Shore Blvd beside the Franklin county annex building in Winchester on Friday, Sept. 12, from 6 p.m. until midnight.

There’s still time to form teams for the Walk-a-Thon. Teams must consist of a minimum of six walkers contributing $50 each. Team money can be raised by having bake sales, car washes, yard sales, or other creative means. Luminary candles in memory of or in honor of cancer victims can also still be purchased as well as quilt raffle tickets.

This year at the Walk-A-Thon organizers are again having a tent or canopy decorating contest, so plan your team and decorations now.

To form teams, purchase luminary candles, or for any other information regarding MCCSN or the Walk-A-Thon, visit www.MCCSN.org or call (931) 393-4443.

Everyone is welcome to attend and share a great night full of food, fun, and fellowship alongside all of those wanting to support MCCSN’s awesome mission. MCCSN needs your help to continue a strong operation serving cancer victims in our local counties, so bring a car load and join in Friday night for MCCSN’s largest fundraiser of the year.
