On Oct. 24, “Halos for Harlie: A Walk for Leukemia” will be held at Sox Harrison Stadium at Edinboro University from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. to celebrate the life of Harlie Rae Bolt.
All participants are encouraged to wear tie-dye, flannel or orange in honor of Bolt, a sophomore psychology major at Edinboro University who died suddenly last spring at the age of 19 after a brief battle with acute myelogenous leukemia.
The gates open at 5:30 and the walk will begin at 6 p.m. The cost is $5 to enter.
There will be food, drinks, music, a 50/50 raffle and a Chinese raffle. A balloon release and luminary ceremony will start at 7:45 p.m.
Donations are welcome. All proceeds will benefit the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
