Nebraska’s 3rd Lymphomathon 5K walk will be held Saturday, April 28, at  Mahoney State Park.  Proceeds will go to fund research and patient education.  

The event, which is hosted by the  Lymphoma Research Foundation, will begin at 10 a.m. with registration at 9 a.m. at the park pavilion. Mahoney State Park is located just off of I-80 at exit 426, between Omaha and Lincoln.

The Lymphomathon is a fun-filled, non-competitive event that offers individuals and teams an opportunity to walk in honor of those whose lives have been touched by lymphoma.

Proceeds from the walk will benefit Nebraskans through free patient services and research grants.
