According to the American Cancer Society, an estimated 35,280 Hoosiers will be diagnosed with cancer and 13,690 Hoosiers will die from the disease each year. The Suits and Sneakers challenge is an effort to highlight ways to reduce the risk of cancer, like eating right, exercising and making healthy lifestyle choices.
