Last night was the Bruins “Kick for a Cure” cancer fundraiser in support of Blackford County volunteer Fred Hoffman. Hoffman was recently diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and is undergoing treatment.

Always energetic, Hoffman has played a significant role in the development and construction of the Blackford Greenway in Hartford City and has continued to be involved in maintenance and improvements for the two-mile scenic, paved pathway. He also heads a Pedicab program designed to provide rides for those unable to walk or bike the trail independently. He has also served as the president of the Blackford Youth Soccer program for most of its 29 years of existence.
