October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The Greene Medical Foundation is holding the Circle of Victory Cancer Awareness Walk on Sunday, October 11 at Soin Medical Center, 3535 Pentagon Boulevard in Beavercreek.
Registration opens at 12:30 p.m. The walk begins at 2:00 p.m. The course is a 5K around the Soin Medical Center campus and the adjoining neighborhood. It concludes with a ceremony recognizing those who are living with cancer, remembering those who lost their battle with cancer, and celebrating those who beat cancer.
The event features music and vendors, and health screenings and health information.
Proceeds from the event support the Circle of Victory Fund, which underwrites financial assistance and support for patients facing cancer and receiving treatment at a Kettering Health Network facility in Greene County. The Fund also underwrites medication, wigs, prostheses and other financial burdens that accompany a cancer diagnosis.
