The Meadows will participate in the 2012 Wickenburg Walk to Boot Breast Cancer being held on Sunday, October 21. Registration begins at 7:00am with opening ceremonies at 7:30 and the walk starting at 8:00 in downtown Wickenburg at Ortega Park.
Courtney Berg, Coordinator of Wellness Services at The Meadows, is the walk organizer for Team Meadows. Donations are still being accepted and the dollars raised will be announced the day of the walk.
The 5K walk is the primary fundraising event for The Wickenburg Breast Cancer Network held annually in October. The funds raised are donated to the Pink Ribbon Angels of the Wickenburg Community Hospital Auxiliary which provide breast cancer diagnosis and support to uninsured and underinsured women and men.
"October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month and The Meadows is pleased to support this year's Wickenburg Walk to Boot Breast Cancer," said Jim Dredge, CEO of The Meadows. "I would like to recognize Courtney Berg for organizing the staff at The Meadows to participate and raise money for this important cause."
