A Day of Fun for Cancer Patients, Caregivers, and Families is being held in Metropolis on September 23rd. The Cancer Warriors Walk of Hope is not a fundraising event, but an opportunity for every family to enjoy the park’s walking path where they can play games, enjoy bounce houses, face painting, a balloon artist, yoga, music, and more. Admission is free to the public. The walking path is paved and easily accessible for wheelchairs and strollers.

The event is 10:00 AM to 1:00 PM at the Dorothy Miller Park; located next to Harrah’s Casino.

For event details, or to be an event vendor or supporter, visit the Cancer Warriors Walk of Hope Facebook page or call the Southern7 Health Department and speak with Shawnna at 618-634-2297, ext. 9161.
