Asher’s Walk for a Cure this weekend

By Brittany Wise -

The Fourth Annual Asher’s Walk for a Cure will be held this Saturday, Sept. 19 at Clarkson Community Park at 9 a.m.

The annual walkathon helps to raise funds for St. Jude Children’s Hospital, and everyone is encouraged to walk or just stop by and support this local event.

Asher’s Walk for a Cure is named after a little boy who found himself fighter cancer alongside his mother. While his mother sadly passed away, Asher is a survivor and has been cancer-free for three years now.

The proceeds from this event will help other children who are battling cancer to receive the treatments they need from St. Jude, a facility which never turns away any child.

Saturday’s event will feature door prizes and vendor booths in addition to the walkathon, all with the purpose of raising funds to fight childhood cancer.

For more information on the event or to make a donation, contact Carla Grant by calling (270) 242-7166 or (270) 899-0579.
