Don Lehe (R-Brookston) and Sharon Negele (R-Attica) 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 National Association of Basketball Coaches, to help raise awareness. About 2.4 million Indiana residents, or 2 out of every 5 people now living in Indiana, will eventually develop cancer. To help prevent cancer, Hoosiers should get regular check-ups and cancer screening tests.
