The Outreach Committee eagerly invites parishioners and their friends to join the Good Shepherd “SheepWalkers” team at the Denver Brain Tumor Walk on Saturday, June 1 at beautiful Sloan’s Lake Park (17th Ave and Utica in Denver). The walk begins at 9 am—we will gather at about 8:30 am—look for a Good Shepherd banner. For the third year, walkers from Good Shepherd will be helping to raise vital funds for Brain Tumor research as our church recognizes past and current members and/or their families and friends who have battled or are battling brain tumors. Pediatric brain tumors are the leading cause of cancer-related death for children and adolescents under age 19, and the need for funding is acute—the bulk of the registration fee goes directly to funding of research. According to the event website, all funds raised through these events allow the National Brain Tumor Society to advance research and public policy to improve the availability of new and better treatments, and fuel the discovery of a cure for brain tumors.
This 3 mile walk is a great, low-key event for people of all ages and we especially encourage families to join the Team.
The registration fee is $25 for ages 18 and above until May 3, and $30 from May 4-May 30. The registration fee includes a t-shirt. Under 18 registration is free.
