‘Cancer Sucks’ walk coming soon

Nancy, Chris, and Brooke Nemec invite all friends of the late George R. Nemec and all area citizens to participate in the annual Cancer Sucks Walk, held in his memory.

George Nemec, who died in 2008, contributed many hours of work on behalf of the Warrensburg community, as well as being the owner of a successful business that has for decades provided good jobs for many local people. He also brightened people’s lives with his humor, and contributed to an untold number of local charitable causes.

The fundraiser is scheduled for Saturday Oct. 5. Sign-in is set for 5 p.m. at 10 Lake Avenue in Warrensburg. The suggested donation is $10 per person, but people are quite welcome to donate more. All proceeds go to the C.R. Wood Cancer Center at the Glens Falls Hospital in George’s memory.

The walk raised $5,600 last year and the charity’s organizers, who thank everyone for their continued support, seek to raise that amount in the 2013 walk. The amount has been increasing each year — the fundraising event raised $3,500 in 2011.

Those with questions or donations, contact Brooke Nemec at: 744-5035 or drop off donations at Nemec’s Sport Shop on Main St. in Warrensburg.

Last year $5,600 was raised and donated to the Charles Wood Cancer Center.
