A convoy of Walmart Heart Drivers will depart from the Walmart Distribution Center as they head to the Hermiston Walmart store for a fundraiser to benefit Jasmine Ellwood.

The event begins Saturday at 9:30 a.m. with a police escort to the Hermiston store’s parking lot near the garden center, 1350 N. First St. The gathering will be opened in prayer, followed by statements from Hermiston mayor David Drotzmann, Jasmine and her family. The Hermiston teen has been battling Ewing sarcoma, a type of bone cancer.

The fundraiser will feature a hamburger and hot dog cook-out. Donations will be accepted, which will go to the Ellwood family to assist with expenses related to Jasmine’s treatment.
