The annual Waldo County Healthcare Oncology Walk & Basket Raffle was held Oct. 18, with more than 75 walkers participating.

Following the walk, winning raffle tickets were drawn for baskets put together by area businesses and hospital departments.

All proceeds from the walk and basket raffle go to the Oncology Patient Assistance and Mammography funds. The Oncology Patient Assistance Fund helps patients defray the cost of cancer treatments. The Mammography Fund helps pay for mammograms and breast biopsies for patients with no insurance or insurance with a high deductible.

The walk also supports cancer patients undergoing treatment, honors patients who have survived cancer and, especially, keeps close the memory of those lost to cancer.
