Project Militia

The mission of Project Militia is to educate people on the power of cancer prevention.

Project Militia is a force of ordinary citizens committed to waging a war on cancer in their communities. These dedicated individuals are Heroes Foundation foot soldiers, promoting cancer prevention and healthy lifestyles throughout the state of Indiana.
Tactically, this means raising awareness and education by providing literature, presenting facets of healthy living and cancer prevention, and offering promotional items at events related to the fight against cancer. Project Militia further spreads its fighting message by attending events and visiting children’s hospital units in Hero1, a giant retired military vehicle. Our allies in these efforts include American Cancer Society, Livestrong, local cancer centers and others.
