JAMESTOWN - On Oct. 5, starting at 10 a.m., LINKS Charity and WCA Hospital will host the 3rd annual LINKS Pink Walk: A Celebration of Courage presented by Jamestown Radiologists, Medline and Whisper's Boutique at Patient's Pharmacy at the Chautauqua Mall.
Just before the walk begins, at 10:45 a.m., a special video tribute will be shown in the mall food court. This video will pay special tribute to the courage of all those who have survived breast cancer by featuring those brave individuals and their families. If you or a loved one has survived breast cancer, you are encouraged to e-mail 1-3 individual and/or family photos to firstname.lastname@example.org, or drop off the photos to Karl Sisson (664-8423) in the WCA Hospital Office of Development, just inside WCA Hospital Administration Suite at 207 Foote Ave.
This special event will celebrate the courage of those who have battled breast cancer and enhance local breast cancer care at WCA Hospital. Walkers are encouraged to pre-register and join a team on-line at www.FirstGiving.com/wca/LINKS-Pink-Walk-2013. Event registration forms and walker pledge forms can also be downloaded at www.wcahospital.org.
