Breast cancer awareness walk a success

To the Editor,

On behalf of the Hancock County Health Department staff and the West Virginia Breast and Cervical Cancer Screening Program, I would like to thank all walkers and sponsors for making The Walk for Women…Take a Step Against Breast Cancer Awareness walk a success!

Our T-shirt sponsors included Weirton Medical Center, First Choice America Community Federal Credit Union, CHANGE, Inc. and Stuff With Attitude.

Thanks also goes out to Mountaineer Casino, Sparkle Market, Fox’s Pizza Den, Sheetz, Eat N Park, Tudor’s, Walmart, Ted’s Plaza Pharmacy, K-Mart, Bob Evans, Weirton McDonalds, Connie’s Restaurant, New Cumberland-RX, Kroger’s-Three Springs Drive, Giovanni’s, Donut Connection, Franks Pastry, Coopers Auto Body, Theo Yianni’s, Weirton Shop N Save, Affordable Gifts, DiCarlo’s Pizza in Newell, Convenient Food Mart, Sweet Temptations, Holiday Inn, Weirton, Undo’s , Ronnie Jones, Commissioner Joe Barnabei and Wacky Jack’s Balloons for their donations of raffle prizes.

Through our efforts we were able to raise $1,500 for the West Virginia Breast & Cervical Cancer Diagnostic and Treatment Fund.

Every dollar will remain in West Virginia and be placed in the fund to provide lifesaving services to the women in our LOCAL communities.

Thank you for your generosity!

We are already planning for the 2017 Awareness Walk.
