Salem Memorial District Hospital invites everyone to take a walk at noon Oct. 1.

The Rising Above Breast Cancer walk is a kickoff event to help raise breast cancer awareness in our community. Attendees are encouraged to wear pink in honor and support of those who have battled breast cancer.

Meet at Salem Christian Church’s lawn area, Fourth Street, at 11:45 a.m. At noon, Salem Police Department will escort walkers down Fourth Street and continue around the court house square. Pink balloons will be provided for all participants.
