LIHUE — The Kauai Committee on the Status of Women invites the public to help them “Paint the Town Pink” in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
The annual walk will start at the Lihue Civic Center Moikeha Building on Oct. 26 at 11:15 a.m.
Bev Brody with Get Fit Kauai will start the group off with an energetic warm-up. Following the warm-up, walkers will head down Kuhio Highway to Wilcox Memorial Hospital and back to the Moikeha Building.
Participants are encouraged to wear anything pink to show their support of breast cancer awareness and to remind the public of the importance of early detection.
The American Cancer Society’s Breast and Cervical Cancer Program will provide brochures and other educational materials about cancer awareness.
