Retired Salina officer to walk across Kansas for cancer cure
A cancer survivor and retired Salina Police officer will walk across Kansas to raise awareness and money for cancer research.
Lt. Dean Bonawitz, 69, will walk across US-36 from Colorado to Missouri. The 26-year law enforcement veteran expects to complete the 400-mile journey in a month, walking about 15 miles a day.
It's not the first journey for the prostate cancer survivor. He raised $3,500 for a simlar walk last year.
He plans to start walking May 12.
Donations can be mailed to Cops for a Cure, 251 N. 10th, Salina, KS 67401. Proceeds will go to Relay for Life.
