Livestrong event Tuesday for cancer awareness

May 11, 2008|By Emily Groves

Howard County will host one of more than 500 Livestrong Day events nationwide Tuesday at Lake Kittamaqundi in Columbia.

The free event, sponsored by the Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults, will take place from 11 a.m. to noon. It will feature a raffle of autographed Lance Armstrong memorabilia, live music from the Blue Line and a box lunch from Clyde's and the Tomato Palace.

Speakers will include County Executive Ken Ulman; Vic Broccolino, president and chief executive officer of Howard County General Hospital; and local cancer survivors.

Livestrong Day is a one-day initiative by the Lance Armstrong Foundation to raise awareness and funds for the fight against cancer, according to the Web site, livestrong .org. This year's event will be the first in Howard County.

Participants are encouraged to wear yellow to show support and can receive a Livestrong bracelet at the event. For more information, contact Tessa Goldscher at tessa@ulmanfund.org or at 410-964-0202, ext. 103.
