The 19th Annual Sue DeYoung/Judy Edger Memorial Breast Cancer 5K Walk/Run takes place in Charlevoix’s East Park on Sat. May 11, 2013. Registration begins at 8 a.m. and the walk and run begin at 9 a.m. Individual walkers, runners and teams can collect “pledges” & those that raise $30 or more receive an event t-shirt. Registration forms are available at www.walkruncure.org.
There will be a “Wear Your Support” bra decorating contest. All participants are encouraged to decorate a bra and wear the decorated bra over their t-shirt or clothing during the event. Prizes will be awarded. The event honors two courageous local women: Sue DeYoung & Judy Edger. Proceeds benefit Charlevoix County’s Circle of Strength Foundation, to provide mammograms for women in need, and the Health Department of Northwest Michigan, to be used for the free cervical screening program for Charlevoix County residents.
