The American Cancer Society estimates that 1 in 8 women in the United States will develop invasive breast cancer during her lifetime. To raise awareness and contribute to the cause, MHP has planned the following activities:
Awareness Walk - Friday, Oct. 6
Give your lunch hour to a good cause by walking from Noon - 1 pm on the Square in Oskaloosa (rain location: Penn Central Mall) in order to raise awareness for breast cancer. With a $25 per person donation, each participant will receive registration for the walk and a long-sleeve commemorative T-shirt. Your support is appreciated whether you can walk all or part of the time.
Registration is now closed for this event.
T-shirts will be available for pick-up on Thursday, Oct. 5 inside entrance #1 on the MHP campus from 1 - 5 pm. If you are unable to pick up your shirt ahead of time, they will be available at the walk.
FREE Women's Breast Health Night - Tuesday, Oct. 17
Hosted at the Gateway Church of the Nazarene in Oskaloosa, 6:30 - 8:00 pm. This evening is a fun, educational opportunity where women can gather to learn more about protecting themselves from breast cancer while enjoying fabulous food and door prizes. This year's program will feature MHP Family Practice and Obstetrics Physician Angela Godejohn, MD. This event is free but space is limited so pre-registration is required.
