MARQUETTE, MI – (Great Lakes Radio News) –Mary Beth Kurtz, Erin Neilio, and Tina McCorkle were in the studio to tell us that they will be making the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer during the days of June 2nd and June 3rd. This walk takes place in Chicago and is a fund-raiser to raise money for a cure for breast cancer.
As Mary Beth mentioned…one in three people…mostly women but men can be victims too, will contract breast cancer at some point in their life. All of our lives have been touched by breast cancer in some way. The Avon Walk for Breast Cancer research raised over $3 million dollars last year. It is a marathon walk of over 39 miles! These ladies will walk every mile of that, along with many others, to raise money and to raise awareness of the breast cancer epidemic.
Nate Noble was also in the studio to talk about the golf outing entitled “Breast Friends” that will take place on May 20th at Gentz’s Homestead Golf Course to raise money for these ladies to go and to donate to this great cause. You can donate online by going to the Breast Friends Golf Outing Facebook Page.
