Original post from May 16, 2011:
Cancer Services of Northeast Indiana is hosting its annual fundraising walk, Lapper, on Saturday, May 21, 2011, at Foster Park, located in southwest Fort Wayne.

Lapper 2011 is a fundraiser for Cancer Services designed to honor or memorialize those touched by cancer. When Lapper founder Jill Burnett first organized this event 9 years ago, she encouraged people to test their own endurance and push past their comfort zone just as people with cancer do every day. That tradition continues today, and each Lapper participant is encouraged to walk as many laps around the paved 2-mile trail at Foster Park as they can.

Bring a friend, form a team and help us raise money to provide support and services to people with cancer in our community. The goal is to raise $60,000 at this year’s event. All proceeds benefit Cancer Services of Northeast Indiana and help support programs for people with cancer in our community.

There are two ways to register: online at, or by downloading the registration forms at Forms are also available at Cancer Services. Water and fresh fruit will be provided and the walk will take place, rain or shine.
