Nebraska Lymphoma Walk Raises More Than $43K
The Lymphoma Research Foundation (www.lymphoma.org) held its 9th annual Nebraska Lymphoma Walk at Mahoney State Park. The walk attracted more than 36 teams and 375 participants and raised nearly $43,000.
Proceeds from the walk will benefit Nebraskans through research grants and patient services. To date, $643,000 has been raised through walk participants and sponsors.
The Lymphoma Walk is a 5K fun-filled, non-competitive event that offers individuals and teams an opportunity to walk to support those whose lives have been touched by lymphoma, a cancer of the lymph nodes. About 450 new cases of lymphoma are diagnosed in Nebraska each year.
