‘Cancer Sucks’ walk
Last year, Chris & Brooke Nemec started a community event — a walk to raise money to fight cancer — and they donated the proceeds to Glens Falls Hospital.
This year’s edition is to be held Oct. 1, with the walk starting at 5 p.m. on Lake Avenue, according to Brook Nemec, who said she’d like to see even more entrants this year. The cost to join is a $10 suggested minimum donation.
The Cancer Sucks walk is dedicated to honor the memory of the late George Nemec, who for decades was a leading businessman in Warrensburg and a dedicated community servant, particularly through his work with the Warrensburg Chamber of Commerce. He also donated a good deal of his time, cash and talents to a variety of charities, as well as families in distress.
George Nemec died in April 2010 after battling cancer.
For details, call Brooke Nemec at 744-5035. Those who aren’t able to join the walk are welcome to make a donation regardless.
Last year, more than $1,000 was raised, and event organizers hope to surpass that sum for 2011.
