Whitney Commons was a blanket of pink Saturday at the 2nd Annual “The Link—Partnership in Pink” fundraiser sponsored by Memorial Hospital.
There were over 650 registered participants in the fun run/walk event featuring a 10k run, a 5k run or walk and a 1.5 mile walk.
Beginning at Whitney Commons and ending at the “Y” soccer field, Nancy Hooge said she appreciated the community participation.
Rhonda Hart, bedazzled in pink, participated in the walk, but more than that, she was celebrating because she is a cancer survivor.
She also had some great advice.
And what does life mean for Rhonda?
Food, music, and give-aways followed the event.
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. All funds raised will go towards the prevention, treatment and cancer care at the Welch Cancer Center located next to the hospital.
