GOSHEN, Ind. – To raise money for cancer care in our community, Middlebury Walks for a Cure will be held Sunday, October 8, 2017, at Das Dutchman Essenhaus Inn and Conference Center (Middlebury). The 5K run will include the new Ridge Run Trail and part of the Pumpkinvine Trail; the one mile walk is a scenic route staying closer to the inn.

Other activities that day will be a “pretty in pink” contest, silent auction, awards ceremony, prizes and raffles. An exhibit hall is available for local vendors.

Registration begins at 1 p.m. with opening ceremonies at 1:45 p.m. The 5K Walk/Run will start after the opening ceremonies. Timing chips are available for runners.
