Village Walk for Cancer Research to Benefit UAMS Cancer Institute

LITTLE ROCK – Grab your walking shoes and head to the 14th Annual Village Walk for Cancer Research on Sept. 26 in Hot Springs Village. One hundred percent of net proceeds from the walk will benefit the Winthrop P. Rockefeller Cancer Institute at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS).

Cost to participate is $35. Participants may register on the day of the event or in advance at www.walkforcancerresearch.org. Walkers are invited to participate in memory or honor of a loved one.

Participants will gather at Cortez Pavilion and may walk any distance they desire along the Hernando Trail. In addition to the walk, the event will feature door prizes, a silent auction, lunch and live music.

Since it began 14 years ago, the Village Walk for Cancer Research has raised almost $500,000 for cancer research programs at the UAMS Cancer Institute. As Arkansas’ only academic cancer center, the UAMS Cancer Institute offers research-driven care and clinical trials unavailable elsewhere in the state.
