Greer Alsup Memorial Cancer Walk to be held at Motlow State Oct. 13

LYNCHBURG, TN (Oct. 6, 2016) — A memorial cancer walk will be held on the Moore County campus of Motlow State Community College on Thursday, Oct. 13, beginning at 1:45 p.m. at the Crouch Center.

This year’s event, The Greer Alsup Memorial Cancer Walk, honors the memory of Greer Alsup, a Motlow employee of 24 years who lost her battle to cancer in June. The walk will consist of one lap around the loop road and will be culminated with a reception in the Crouch Center.

To recognize Alsup’s service and dedication to Motlow State, a ceremony will precede the walk. A tree will be planted beside a park bench outside of Crouch Center and an engraved marker will denote the many contributions made by the at-large Motlow State community.

“The legacy of Greer Alsup will continue,” said Brenda Cannon, director of special events at Motlow. “This event, which for many years Greer served as grand marshal, honors the memory of our special friend and colleague who recently lost her battle with cancer.”

Additionally a Greer Alsup Memorial Scholarship Fund is being established through the Motlow College Foundation. Contributions are being accepted.

Cancer walks raise awareness of cancer and show solidarity of support for those affected by cancer. October is breast cancer awareness month.

“Cancer is color blind. Cancer has no respect of the person,” added Cannon. “We encourage the community to come and walk, wear pink and support this great cause.”
