Ascension Social Concerns is helping out this wonderful cause in honor of all our parishioners who have died from, are living with or survived any form of cancer. It is a super opportunity for your whole family to participate in a race, a family fun run or Kids’ dash, breakfast and fun! It occurs at the KU Edwards Campus so it’s right in our neighborhood (Quivera and 127th St)! Or sign the family up to volunteer to help!
