Centertown man up to the Walk-a-Thon challenge
Saturday, May 12, 2012
In 2006, Bob Haslag had been retired for five years and was looking for something to do when his phone rang one day.
“It was all about timing; they called and were looking for someone, and I was up to a challenge,” said Haslag, of Centertown.
Since 2006, Haslag has organized the St. Jude Walk-A-Thon, which starts at 8:30 a.m. May 19 at Helias Catholic High School’s track. This event is and has been the only organized fundraiser for St. Jude in the Cole County area.
