LAKEWOOD – The sixth annual Kallie’s Krusade Fundraising Event will take place on Monday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Lakewood Rod and Gun Club.
The event is used to help raise funding for families who have children facing childhood cancer or other diseases. It is held in memory of the late Kallie Swan, daughter of local residents Shane and Tara Swan, who succumbed to acute lymphoblastic leukemia in May 2015 at the age of 3 following a courageous battle.
“Kallie’s Krusade will bring financial relief and community support to families stricken with childhood disease. Kallie’s Krusade vows to bring honor to those who have fallen to childhood illness through continuous efforts of raising knowledge and awareness to the cause,” said Tara Swan. “Hand in hand, with all of the childhood disease survivors, Kallie’s Krusade will instill in the community that there is always hope and help in a seemingly endless battle.”
A variety of events and activities are planned for throughout the day. Details and Registration for all special events can be done at KalliesKrusade.org.
