Milton Hershey School will hold a 24-hour community-wide walk event (rain or shine) Saturday, April 12, at 11 a.m., until Sunday, April 13, at 11 a.m., on the MHS campus at the Henry Hershey Field. The event will begin with an opening ceremony before kicking off the 24-hour relay walk at 11 a.m. The MHSAA 5K(optional) will also start at 11 a.m., including one lap around the track at Henry Hershey Field, followed with walking or running a 5K course on the MHS campus. The 24-hour walk is open to students, staff, alumni and the community. Registration includes the 5K, but it is not mandatory to do the 5K in order do the Community Walk!
The walk is open to students, staff, alumni and the community. The 24-hour walk, inspired in part by the work of the Milton Hershey School Alumni Association Cancer Care committee, is a chance to bring our community together to celebrate cancer survivors, honor those presently fighting, and memorialize those who have succumbed to cancer.
Registration is $10, and includes a t-shirt and light refreshments. Registration will open on Wednesday, February 19. You may also send a check made payable to Milton Hershey School, Attn: Finance Dept., PO Box 830 Hershey PA 17033-0830. Please include “Cancer Care Community walk” in the memo line. Registration includes the 5K, but it is not mandatory to do the 5K in order do the Community Walk. The 5K is an optional event.
Proceeds and donations will go to the MHSAA Cancer Care Committee. A portion of donations will also be given to the local chapter of the American Cancer Society. Find a list of mini-fundraisers leading up to Cancer Care here.
