The community is encouraged to join Seaford and the Allen Cancer Care Center at Nanticoke for the annual Pink Ribbon Breast Cancer Awareness Walk to “Turn Sussex Pink” and kick off Breast Cancer Awareness Month, set for 6:15 p.m. Oct. 1.

The walk brings community members together to honor breast cancer survivors and remember those who lost their battle with breast cancer.

The walk will kick off at 7 p.m. and will follow a three-block lighted path from the Allen Cancer Care Center at Nanticoke, 801 Middleford Road, Seaford, to Gateway Park, which will be decorated with pink lights and ribbons. The walk will end with a ceremony at Gateway Park including opening remarks, a proclamation, a presentation from a featured speaker and an inspirational performance by a soloist.

During October, Nanticoke will host several activities to promote breast cancer awareness including the Pink Ribbon Survivor’s Tea on Oct. 12; a Go Pink Bake Sale on Oct. 18; and the annual Bling the Bra fundraising contest running throughout the month.
