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

“In 2015, nearly 89 Hoosiers were diagnosed with cancer every day,” Steuerwald said. “Cancer is impactful and prevalent in so many people’s lives. Events like the Suits and Sneakers challenge represent a small way that we can offer great support to families affected by this awful disease.”

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.
