Saturday morning, roughly 80 people gathered at Clay County High School to walk for Breast Cancer Awareness. The morning was chilly, so everyone gathered in the warmth of the high school and listened to several inspirational speakers of survivors/warriors and family members of Breast Cancer. Breast Cancer is such a horrible disease, and it was very inspirational and moving to see how many care about those who have had breast cancer or those who support the awareness of the disease.
The Breast Cancer walk raised over $1000 to go to the West Virginia Breast and Cervical cancer screening program which helps those without insurance still get the testing needed to prevent or help fight this awful disease. The walls of the gym were covered with beautiful posters made by students around the county. There was plenty of food and door prizes. The most moving part was the survivor/warrior kick – off walk.
