Lace up your sneakers to help MSU fight cancer

February 28, 2014

Help Mississippi State University fight cancer by lacing up your sneakers for a workplace challenge. All it takes is a minimum donation of $5 to wear your sneakers to work.

It's simple to join MSU in the fight against cancer:

1. Donate $5 at

2. Lace up your sneakers at work on Wednesday [March 5].

3. Fight cancer comfortably and join your colleagues for a special walking lunch break around the new Chadwick Lake track on Wednesday at noon.

In addition to raising money to fight cancer, wearing your sneakers acts as a simple reminder to live a healthy and active lifestyle.

All of the proceeds from "Wear Your Sneakers to Work Day" will go to support the MSU Relay For Life event scheduled for April 4-5. This money supports the American Cancer Society's lifesaving work, like offering cancer patients a free place to stay when they have to travel away from home for treatment.
