Mahan laces up sneakers to fight cancer 

INDIANAPOLIS (Jan. 19, 2016) – State Rep. Kevin Mahan (R-Hartford City) paired his sneakers with his suit today at the Statehouse to help raise cancer awareness.

“Cancer can have a huge impact on our lives and the lives of our loved ones. It is estimated 2.4 million Hoosiers will develop cancer in their lifetime,” Mahan said. “One way we can continue to fight this disease is by increasing awareness, supporting research and promoting a healthy lifestyle.”

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.
