GHS Foundation "In the Pink" Breast Cancer Awareness Walk Oct. 4

Saturday, August 09, 2014

Make the morning of Oct. 4 a time of remembrance and celebration at Georgetown Hospital System Foundation's Annual "In the Pink" Breast Cancer Awareness Walk.

Events get underway at 8:30 at the Imaging Center at Waccamaw Medical Park, with the walk beginning at 10 a.m. and concluding at 11 a.m.

Early registration is encouraged and will continue through Sept. 3. For more details, call 843.652.8080.

In addition to the two-mile walk, which winds through the Marsh Walk along Murrells Inlet, the morning’s activities will feature a vendor expo, pink bake sale, musical entertainment and complimentary Shutterbooth photos.

Special highlights include the Survivor Celebration and Pam’s Garden. The Survivor Celebration, which precedes the walk, will feature remarks by Dr. Craig Brackett, a physician with Coastal Carolina Breast Center, and a welcome by WPDE meteorologist Ed Piotrowski.

Pam’s Garden honors the memory of Pam Sloan, who started the “in the Pink” walk but lost her battle to breast cancer. Pink cardboard flowers will be available for $20 before the event and the day of the walk. Participants can decorate them beforehand in honor of and put them in Pam’s Garden, which will be near the Imaging Center.

Proceeds from "In The Pink" will benefit the Georgetown Hospital System's Indigent Breast Cancer Fund.
