Virtual Edward I. Moses Walk/Run for Life will benefit St. Lawrence County Cancer Fund
CANTON — Due to gathering restrictions and many other COVID related concerns, the St. Lawrence County Cancer Fund has made the decision to once again host the Edward I. Moses Walk/Run for Life virtually.
Participants may do their own version of the Walk/Run for Life and raise important funds to support programs in St. Lawrence County now until the virtual event wraps up on Sunday, April 25. Supporters can walk at St. Lawrence as we usually do, take a stroll at Partridge Run, hike a favorite trail, take a bike ride or do any other enjoyable activity.Online registration and fundraising will once again be available through the GiveLively platform by visiting www.walkrunforlife.com. Those who feel comfortable asking for donations face to face may also do so, or use a combination of online and in-person fundraising. All donations can be turned in to the SLCCF on Sunday, April 25 at the Canton Pavilion, 90 Lincoln Street from 10 a.m. to noon. At this time, participants who raise $50 or more will receive their event t-shirt.
“The focus of the 2021 E.I. Moses virtual event is to ensure we raise as much money as possible to support local cancer programs in our community,” said a press release from the organization. “The efforts of our participants and the support of those who donate to our cause help to provide cancer screenings, education, transportation to treatment and many other programs which contribute greatly to the local fight against cancer.”
Grants have been awarded to Ryan’s Wish, Center for Cancer Care at Canton-Potsdam Hospital, Help Sami Kick Cancer Foundation, Richard Winter Cancer Treatment Center at Claxton-Hepburn Medical Center, Gouverneur Hospital and Hospice of St. Lawrence Valley.
If unable to make a donation April 25, mail support to PO Box 291 in Canton. For more information on the St. Lawrence County Cancer Fund, visit www.walkrunforlife.com .
