WCGH holding annual Oncology Walk Oct. 20
Waldo County General Hospital’s annual Oncology Walk will be held Sunday, Oct. 20. Registration begins at noon with the walk slated to head out at 1 p.m.
Registration is free; $10 with a t-shirt, and $20 with a sweatshirt.
Tickets for the basket raffle will be on sale in the hospital’s classroom from Oct. 14 to 18 and prior to the walk. Tickets are $1 each, 6 for $5 or 15 for $10.
All proceeds will go to the Oncology Patient Assistance and Mammography Funds. The Oncology Patient Assistance Fund helps patients defray the cost of cancer treatments at Waldo County General Hospital. The Mammography Fund helps pay for mammograms and breast biopsies for patients with no insurance or insurance with a high deductible.
The walk is also meant to support cancer patients undergoing treatment; honor patients who have survived cancer; and especially to keep close the memory of those lost to cancer.
