Family Fun Run & Fundraiser - June 6
The Purple War: An opportunity for Cedar Hills residents to serve
Join us for a Family Fun Run and Bake Sale, as funds are raised for Trisha Howard, a strong and courageous Cedar Hills resident. Trish has had—and beaten—Hodgkins Lymphoma three times, and is currently in treatment for a fourth time. The official color of Hodgkins Lymphoma is violet, thus “The Purple War.” We invite you to participate with her friends in their efforts to raise funds for the family.
The Purple War will include a free, one-mile fun run, with voluntary cash donations accepted for Trish. The Purple War will be held on the evening of Thurs., June 6. The Fun Run begins at 8:00 p.m. at the Heritage Park parking lot, 4425 W Cedar Hills Drive. There will be a bake sale and a table selling donated handmade crafts, jewelry, etc. at the park after the Fun Run.
Take non-baked items for the craft sale to the Proffit residence (9913 North 4680 West) during the week prior to June 6. Baked goods should be delivered any time on June 5. For more information contact Madison Proffit at 801-360-1705 or e-mail:
