CAPTION: State Reps. Sharon Negele (R-Attica) and Tim Brown (R-Crawfordsville) pair sneakers with their suits to help kick off February as National Cancer Prevention Month on Wednesday, Jan. 29, 2020, at the Statehouse. The Indiana House of Representatives participated in the Suits and Sneakers Challenge, an annual event hosted by the American Cancer Society and the National Association of Basketball Coaches, to help raise awareness. According to the American Cancer Society, the death rate from cancer in the United States declined by 29 percent since 1991. To continue this downward trend, Hoosiers can make healthy choices like eating right, staying active and not smoking.
