Sneakers and Suits to fight cancer

State Rep. Jim Pressel, R-Rolling Prairie, left, and Michael Aylesworth, R-Hebron, pair sneakers with their suits to help kick off February as National Cancer Prevention Month last week at the Statehouse. The Indiana House participated in the Suits and Sneakers Challenge, an annual event hosted by the American Cancer Society and National Association of Basketball Coaches, to help raise awareness. Avoiding tobacco products, staying at a healthy weight, staying active, and eating a healthy diet may greatly reduce a person’s lifetime risk of developing or dying from cancer, Pressel said.
