GARY | The Student Nurses Association at Indiana University Northwest is hosting a 5k walk/run at 9:30 a.m. on Sunday, April 27 at the Lake County Fairgrounds.

Fundraising chairman Nicky Way said the group is raising funds to support fellow nursing student Tina Sibakoska’s mother, Lidia Sibakoska. In September 2012 Lidia was diagnosed with stage three breast cancer. She underwent vigorous treatment only to find out that the cancer had metastasized to her brain and skin as well, Way said.

Although she is responding very well to treatment, Lidia must continue to have frequent doctors’ appointments, labs drawn, drug therapy, MRIs and other scans done, Way said.

After the sudden, unexpected passing of her husband in 2009, Lidia began attending college courses in hopes of providing her family with a better future. Unfortunately, due to her extreme health condition, this dream had to be put on hold, Way said.

Registration is $35. Log onto www.runrace.net by April 4 to register and be guaranteed a shirt. Registrations accepted thereafter will include shirts while supplies last. A bag tournament will take place after the race.
