Bacon laces up sneakers to fight cancer

STATEHOUSE (Jan. 19, 2016) – State Rep. Ron Bacon (R-Chandler) paired his sneakers with his suit today at the Statehouse to help raise cancer awareness.

“I am extremely excited to be taking part in Suits and Sneakers Day at the Statehouse,” Bacon said. “This event allows us to help overcome cancer, a disease that affects nearly 35,000 Indiana residents a year.”

The Suits and Sneakers challenge is an annual event sponsored by the American Cancer Society and the National Association of Basketball Coaches to help raise cancer awareness and support those affected by the disease.
