About this event

Since its beginning, In Their Shoes has raised over $1.8 million to benefit cancer
patients and their families here in our community. The Loran Smith Center for
Cancer Support serves all cancer patients – regardless of where they live – where

they receive treatment – or their ability to pay.

Services include individual, group, and family counseling, support groups, exercise classes, nutrition workshops, expressive art classes, oncology massage, Healing Touch, and Reiki. All services are free thanks to the generosity of donors and fundraising events like In Their Shoes.

You can register to run/walk as an individual or create your own team!

You can run or walk 6.2 miles anytime, anywhere beginning Saturday, May 22 through Sunday, May 29.
