On Oct. 12, the Wendy L. Hudson Appendix Cancer Awareness Foundation will conduct its third annual #Cancersucks Bar Crawl in Fishers. The event is a fundraiser for Westfield firefighter Christ Dickover, who is battling prostate cancer, and will include a 50/50 raffle to raise funds for breast cancer survivor Tarena Lewis.
The Wendy L. Hudson Appendix Cancer Awareness Foundation is a nonprofit named in honor of Wendy L. Hudson, a Fishers resident. Hudson died from appendix cancer in 2018.
The foundation’s CEO Jennifer Haslett said the bar crawl will begin at 2 p.m. and will include a march down 116th Street in honor of loved ones affected by cancer.
“We’ll start off at Wolfie’s on 96th (Street) and Hague (Road) at 2 p.m. and we’ll be there roughly one hour,” Haslett said. “Then we’ll go to Four Day Ray Brewing from 3 to 4, then at 4 we’ll march down 116th with picket signs in honor of loved ones affected by cancer. Then we march to our final destination, which is Chatham Tap.”
Haslett said more than 100 people will likely participate and that the foundation wants to surpass the $7,000 it raised in 2018. To register, visit facebook.com/events/849464662114548/. Registration is $40 and includes a T-shirt, two raffle tickets and a sign for the march down 116th Street. Additional raffle tickets may be purchased at the event for $20.
