Letter to the Editor: Community support helps breast cancer walk happen

Dear editor,

On Saturday, Oct. 27, GFWC Book Lovers Study Club held their 1st Annual “Walking the Road to Wellness” Breast Cancer Awareness and Fundraising event. We are absolutely thrilled with the response and support we received from the community. Because of this support, we can donate to the Walking the Road to Wellness organization and help many women in our area on their journey to recovery and wellness.

Thank you to the sponsors: Alabama Central Credit Union, Bank Independent, CB&S Bank, Community Spirit Bank, Family Pharmacy Group, First Metro Bank, Grissom Cleaners, Lanny Norris/ State Farm Insurance, Perception Bags, Pilgrim’s Pride, Roger Bedford & Associates, Sunshine Mills, and Valley State Bank for their donations and to Russellville Hospital for donating water to the event.

Thank you to Martha and Johnny Mack Morrow for their personal support to the Walking the Road to Wellness program and a special thank you to Maudie Bedford for partnering with us and helping to make this event possible.

To the many participants, those who walked and those who pledged, it was only through your active participation that we can continue to help our community in these special ways. We look forward to watching this event grow next year and giving us the opportunity to touch those fighting this disease.

To the members of GFWC Book Lovers and Walking the Road to Wellness co-chairs, Shelia Upchurch and Rebecca Reeves, this could not have been done without the gift of your time and commitment.

Looking forward to seeing you all at the Walking the Road to Wellness event next year,

Patricia Cox

GFWC Book Lovers Study Club president
