Our mission at Mahaska Health is to enhance the health and well-being of the communities we serve. In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we will hold two events dedicated to celebrating women’s health this October.
No woman should go without a potentially life-saving mammogram or other breast cancer diagnostic test due to financial need. All proceeds from the walk assist with breast cancer education and mammograms for women in our community with a financial need.

Give your lunch hour to a good cause by walking on Friday, October 11, from Noon - 1 pm on the Square in Oskaloosa (rain location: Penn Central Mall) in order to raise awareness for breast cancer.
