Special Event Planned for Saturday to Recognize Breast Cancer Awareness Month

IU Health Starke Hospital and WKVI Radio are urging you to “think pink” this October. One way to do that is to participate in a 5K race/2 mile walk this Saturday, Oct. 5 at Knox High School.

Registration for the event begins at 3 p.m. and the race begins at 4 p.m. At 3:30 p.m., a celebration will be held to recognize all breast cancer survivors. The $20 registration fee will be used by the hospital to help fund health care including breast cancer issues.

All participants will be given a commemorative pink t-shirt and medals will be given in both events.

Breast cancer is the second leading cause of death in women only after lung cancer.
