This 10 Kilometer run is a chance to bring people together of all ages and all fitness levels, that share a common goal – that goal being fighting breast cancer and promoting health. It is also a way for the community to come together to make a positive impact against breast cancer.
A chef at the event will be doing food demonstrations on healthy eating. Even though you will be getting your workout on for the walk, a few fitness experts will be giving demo classes that you can participate in for free.
With the focus of this walk being surrounded around Breast Cancer Awareness, there will be Breast Cancer Survivors there to tell their stories.
Proceeds for this event will be to support the Cancer Service Support Center in Augusta and to raise funds to support breast cancer research, treatment, and patient support programs. The Cancer Support Service Center in Augusta was formerly known as the Lydia Project.
Their mission is to assist cancer patients with financial and emotional needs during treatment to include lodging and transportation services. The CSS has 7 programs for their “ Cancer Warriors” and family ranging from Prayer, Love Bags and Housing.
