Natchitoches’ Krewe of Excellence, in conjunction with the Natchitoches Regional Medical Center, held a Breast Cancer Awareness Walk in Natchitoches’ City Park, Saturday, October 1. About 50 attendees gathered to hear from survivors and to learn of prevention and treatment options available locally through NRMC. Volunteers were wearing distinctive pink “Fork Cancer” t-shirts which were featured at the NSU football game that afternoon, named the NSU “Fork Cancer” game.
Natchitoches’ Mayor Ronnie Williams and his wife, Tiffany, were joined by the Krewe of Excellence Queen LaShanda Berryman and the King and Queen of the Krewe of Dionysus Randy Williams and Soni Sers in leading the walkers around the track at City Park.
The Breast Cancer Awareness Walk was a fitting way to begin the month of October, which is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
