G-Ma Pam’s Walk for Life

By Christy Porter, Managing Editor

Are you ready to walk your socks off? The 6th Annual G-Ma Pam’s Walk for Life will take place in a new location this year as it continues the tradition of raising funds to support local cancer patients. G-Ma Pam’s Rack Pack, a non-profit organization, is sponsoring the event from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Kissiar Sunflower Patch, 115 North Main Street, on Saturday, Oct. 3.

To begin the festivities, a balloon release will be held at 10 a.m., followed by the teams and individuals honoring local survivors at 10:15 a.m. Walking and/or running the 5K begins at 10:30 a.m.

The location partnership is appropriate for this year’s event, as both G-Ma Pam’s Rack Pack and Kissiar Sunflower Patch support cancer patients and/or survivors.

Vendor booths will be available for shopping during the event and G-Ma Pam’s Rack Pack will be serving pulled pork sandwiches and chicken dinners.

Teams and individuals are encouraged to participate; it is highly recommended that registration is completed no later than Saturday, Sept. 19, to guarantee receipt of this year’s event t-shirt. Both teams and individuals will still be welcome to register, up to and including the day of the event with no t-shirt guarantee. Registration is $25 per person for adults / $15 for kids 10-years and under, (includes guaranteed event t-shirt if registered by Sept. 19) or $15 per person for adults / free for kids 10-years and under, without t-shirt. Team discount of 10 or more is $15 per person with shirt (includes guaranteed event t-shirt if registered by Sept. 19) or $10 without shirt.

Businesses or individuals may also donate with or without participation at the Walk for Life.

Please complete the registration form and return it by Sept. 19 to: Right Away Rent-to-Own at 101 South Main Street in Licking, or mail to Kassi Ramsey, PO Box 52, Licking, MO 65542.
