Augusta Health combats cancer

Augusta Health will Combat Cancer at a fun, fitness fundraising event on Saturday, Oct. 20 at 9:30 a.m. at Lifetime Fitness.

Proceeds from the event will benefit Appearances, a new boutique in the Augusta Health Cancer Center.  Appearances will sell reasonably priced hats, turbans, wigs, lymphedema sleeves, prosthetics, bras and other items needed by cancer patients.

Augusta Health Combats Cancer will start at 9:30 a.m. (registration will begin at 8:30 am) when participants form a large, human Pink Ribbon in the back parking lot of Lifetime Fitness.  The Ribbon will be photographed and become artwork in Appearances.  After the Human Ribbon, Lifetime Fitness instructors will lead Body Combat and Zumba routines.

Artist P. Buckley Moss has donated a print, ‘Stitched for a Cure’, that will be raffled to benefit Appearances.  P. Buckley Moss is a breast cancer survivor.  Raffle tickets will be available at the event and throughout the month of October through the Augusta Health Cancer Center.

The fee for the event is $25, which includes a commemorative T-shirt.  For information on the event or the raffle, visit www.augustahealth.com/news/augusta-health-combats-cancer or call Public Relations at 540.245.7329.
