Evelynn Byrum

Twelve Mile, Indiana

Evelynn Byrum, 18, of Twelve Mile, Ind., a senior at Caston Junior-Senior High School, has coordinated a number of races and “trunk-or-treat” events over the past five years to support people affected by cancer and research for a cure. Inspired to make a difference after several people in her life were diagnosed with cancer, Evelynn has partnered with Purdue University’s cancer research center to support its work and publicize her activities.
