Community Hospital hosts local Komen walk

ANDERSON, Ind. — Break out the pink tennis shoes and sweatbands.

On Saturday, April 20, athletes around the country will walk, run and jog toward a cure for breast cancer, as part of the annual Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure.

With 150 events on five continents, more than 1.7 million people participate in Race for the Cure every year. As of 2010, Race for the Cure had raised more than $1.4 billion for research, community education and other programs.

Downtown Indianapolis holds an annual Pink Parade and the 5K race, but for those who can’t or don’t want to travel, there’s a way to support the cause right here in Madison County.

For the second year in a row, Community Hospital Anderson will hold a local walk on its campus, 1515 N. Madison Ave. Participants will walk a paved path around CHA’s pond, which is just behind the employee parking lot.

The hospital will put all proceeds toward a local grant to provide mammograms to women in Madison County.

In the U.S., 75 percent of Race money stays in the local community. There will also be a ceremony to honor breast cancer survivors.

Registration begins at 9 a.m., an hour before the walk.

Since the hospital receives a grant from Komen, it will also host an informational booth at the walk in Indianapolis.
