Each year thousands of women are diagnosed with breast cancer. The walk held at OUZ Zane State College helps raise awareness for breast cancer and celebrates the lives of survivors.

Organizers of the walk hope to see a large turnout this year. They are encouraging anyone interested in participating to register online ahead of the walk. Amanda Hickerson, Community Development Manager, says they also want to invite all survivors to come out and join the walk.

“We need people to come out and support us that day. We need more survivors to come out. We have awesome little goody bags for them. We need people to come out and walk. Just pink it out and represent in your community.”

This years walk is scheduled for October 14th with registration beginning at 9AM and the walk following at 10.
