Calvert City Pink Ribbon Walk 2016

A Breast Cancer Awareness Pink Ribbon Walk was held Saturday, October 15, 2016 to raise awareness of breast cancer and to support cancer victims. The walk is an annual event in Calvert City and is co-sponsored by West KY Avon Independent Sales Representatives and the City of Calvert City. Organizers of the walk say they do it for their mothers, daughters, sisters and friends.  The walk began at the Calvert City Civic Center and followed the sidewalks up and down Fifth Avenue to its intersection with Main Street. The Calvert City Country Club Ladies Golf Association provided golf carts for people who wanted to participate but were not able to walk in the event.  According to information released by the organizers, Carol Capps, Donna Cullen and Ellen Wilson, funds that were raised last year were contributed to Kentucky Pink Connection. The Kentucky Pink Connection keeps the donations in Kentucky and the money raised is marked for breast cancer survivors in the western Kentucky area.
