Nebraska’s 4th Lymphomathon 5K walk will be held Saturday, April 27, at Mahoney State Park.

The free event, which is hosted by the Lymphoma Research Foundation, will begin at 10 a.m. with registration at 9 a.m. at the park pavilion.

Mahoney State Park is located just off of I-80 at exit 426, between Omaha and Lincoln.

The Lymphomathon is a fun-filled, non-competitive event that offers individuals and teams an opportunity to walk in honor of those whose lives have been touched by lymphoma. A free barbecue will be held for all attendees following the walk.

Proceeds from the walk will benefit Nebraskans through free patient services and research grants. To date, the event has raised $250,000 for research.

At least one Nebraskan is diagnosed with lymphoma, a cancer of the lymph nodes, every day. About 450 new cases of non-Hodgkin lymphoma are diagnosed in Nebraskans each year.

For more information, contact Joyce Clark, planning team chair, (402) 331-0763, jandjclark@cox.net, nebraska@lymphoma.org, or Linda Hammes, co-chair, ljhammes@cox.net.

Strollers and friendly leashed pets are welcome.

To access Mahoney State Park, vehicles need to display a park permit. Daily permits are available at the park gate for $5.
