Mahoney State Park — The Lymphoma Research Foundation held its 9th annual Nebraska Lymphoma Walk at Mahoney State Park on Saturday, April 21.  The walk attracted more than 36 teams and 375 participants and raised nearly $43,000.

Proceeds from the walk will benefit Nebraskans through research grants and patient services. To date, $643,000 has been raised through walk participants and sponsors.

The Lymphoma Walk is a 5K fun-filled, non-competitive event that offers individuals and teams an opportunity to walk to support those whose lives have been touched by lymphoma, a cancer of the lymph nodes. About 450 new cases of lymphoma are diagnosed in Nebraska each year.
