GOSHEN, Ind. -- On October 2, 2016, the 12th annual Middlebury Walks for a Cure 5K Walk/Run was attended by 306 participants. The event raised more than $13,688. Proceeds will benefit Goshen Center for Cancer Care and United Cancer Services of Elkhart County. For 12 years, dedicated volunteers and local businesses from the town of Middlebury have gathered to raise money for local cancer care services during Middlebury Walks for a Cure.

“Fundraising for cancer research is one challenging but certain option for how cancer treatment improves and advances,” stated Dr. Roderich Schwarz, medical director, Goshen Center for Cancer Care. “The money donated from Middlebury Walks for a Cure has helped support making new drugs and treatment opportunities available to our patients.”

Middlebury Walks for a Cure was created in 2005 by Nean Smith, a lifelong Middlebury resident and breast cancer survivor. Today, organizers of the event are Goshen Health and United Cancer Services of Elkhart County.

This not-for-profit event continues to be a grass-roots effort which raises funds to benefit cancer patients and programs throughout Elkhart and surrounding counties in northern Indiana.  

Donations for these, and other programs, can be made year round by contacting the Goshen Health Foundation at 574.364.2457 or online at GoshenHealth.com/Foundation.
