Hayden – On Sat., Nov. 23, the first annual Robert (Pee-Wee) Lorona 5K “Walk To Win” Cancer Walk was held at the Hayden Golf Course. It was a cold and rainy day, but, many still came out in support of the cause.

The goal was to help fight cancer and support the families who are in their own fight against cancer. In order to meet the goals, sponsorships were sought from local businesses and individuals. All proceeds went to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society

Thanks are extended to all who braved the bad weather to participate, as well as all sponsors.
