Breast Cancer Awareness of Darke County is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that provides education, awareness, prevention and screenings for women’s health.
This annual event is a great opportunity to raise public awareness of breast cancer while offering support and information about local resources for men and women who have been diagnosed with cancer.

The walk will start at approximately 9:30 a.m. following the 5K run/walk event.
