Registration begins at 7 a.m., and there will be a Survivor Recognition Ceremony beginning at 8 a.m. The 5K Walk begins at 8:30 a.m., with a Pink Ribbon Cutting to kick-off the start of the 5K event at the starting location at the upper level parking lot near JC Penney.
In 2011, there were more than 2.5 million breast cancer survivors in the United States. Saint Clare’s Foundation seeks to help increase this number through its annual Walk. Over the past ten years, the Walk has succeeded in raising more than $900,000 gross in support of Cancer Care at Saint Clare’s programs and services at Saint Clare's Health System.
