Public Awareness Event Has New Route
The Fourth Annual Brake for Breakfast, to raise public awareness among area residents about the importance of breast cancer screening, will be from 6:30 to 8:30 a.m. Friday, Oct. 7, at the Foster J. Boyd, MD, Regional Cancer Center, 31 Farquhar Ave., across from Clinton Memorial Hospital.
In addition to a free to-go breakfast, drive-through motorists will receive breast cancer information and be encouraged to schedule a mammogram. Cards will be distributed that must be taken to mammogram appointments at Clinton Memorial Hospital Diagnostic Services by the end of the year in order to become eligible for several prizes. Prizes will be awarded in January 2012.
To help alleviate congested traffic conditions experienced in past years, those attending this year will enter the employee parking lot off of West Locust Street and exit to Farquhar Avenue via the center's main entrance.
The event is designed for area residents in motor vehicles only, not pedestrians.
