Each year, nearly 300 local women and men celebrate breast cancer survivorship and awareness by participating in the Lehighton Area Lioness Lions Club Pink Light Walk.
The 13th annual Pink Light Walk will be held at the Lehighton Recreation Center on Tuesday, October 2, 2018.
Registration for the walk will begin at 5:30, with the walk to follow at 6:30. Participants will be walking from the Lehighton Recreation Center to the Lehighton Amphitheatre and back. If unable to walk, participants may drive to the amphitheater.
All those participating are asked to wear a pink t-shirt to increase awareness of breast cancer.
Following the walk, light refreshments will be served and there will be a 50/50 drawing and an “In the Pink” raffle.
Funds from the event are donated to the Pennsylvania Breast Cancer Coalition and this year, the donation will be made in honor of all survivors who attend and sign the card. The PA Breast Cancer Coalition represents, supports and serves breast cancer survivors and their families in Pennsylvania through educational programming, legislative advocacy and breast cancer research grants.
The “Pink Heals” Fire Truck and ambulance will be other hi-lites of the evening. All funds raised will support the PA Breast Cancer Coalition. There is no charge to participate. Each participant who registers will receive a pink glow bracelet and each survivor will receive a glow bracelet and gift.
Walk participants should pre-register at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 610.377.1053 and provide name, address, telephone number & email address and indicate whether a survivor or supporter. If registering a team the name of each team member must be included.
