In 2009, officials with the Sheridan Memorial Hospital Foundation started a fundraiser to help support digital mammography in Sheridan. Foundation Executive Director Ada Kirven says that The Link-Partners in Pink breast cancer awareness run/walk is not just a means to raise funds, it's also a chance to raise awareness since Wyoming is consistently below the national average for breast cancer screening.
The event will take place Saturday, October 19th, 10 am at Whitney Commons in Sheridan. Kirven says that people can save $10 by registering for the event before the end of the business day next Monday (Oct. 14).
Kirven added that there will be a bag pick-up Friday afternoon, October 18 from 3 to 6 in the hospital cafeteria.
