Area lodge sets up 'Cancer Challenge'

Sunday, October 16, 2011

Brazil Elks Lodge 762 members Tyler Fischer (left) and Neil Brown are competing against each other in a Cancer Challenge the lodge has put together.
Brazil Elks Lodge 762 is having a Cancer Challenge Sunday, Oct. 23, at 10 a.m., at the Brazil Armory and the Forest Park walking track. The physical training competition will benefit American Cancer research.

The two men competing in the challenge are Brazil Elks Lodge members Tyler Fischer and Neil Brown.

"My family and so many other people in the community have been affected by cancer, and this is a great way for the Elks to come together and raise money to help fight cancer," Fischer said.

Points will be awarded in each event including maximum push-ups in two minutes, maximum sit-ups in two minutes and a two-mile run.

"There really won't be a winner between the two of us, American Cancer Society is going to be the winner," Brown said. "Anytime you can raise money for a great cause like the American Cancer Society, you want to take that opportunity and do what you can."

The men are asking community members to make pledges as donations for this fundraiser.

For pledging information, contact the Brazil Elks at 448-8665.
