INDIANAPOLIS (Jan. 19, 2016) – State Rep. Bob Behning (R-Indianapolis) paired his sneakers with his suit today at the Statehouse to help raise cancer awareness. 

“My family has personally been affected by cancer. It is important to raise awareness and support research to help combat this problem,” Behning said. “This year, more than 35,000 Hoosiers could be diagnosed with cancer.”

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.
