Breast Cancer Walk logoThe MVH Lois Orange Ducoeur Breast Cancer Walk is a favorite event in our Mon Valley Community. There is nothing like gathering together to support our loved ones who have faced breast cancer. While it's not possible for us to walk as a large group in Charleroi this year, we are still hosting the event in a virtual format.

So, what does that mean? Really, it means that you can decide how participating in the event this year works for you. Any time between October 1 and October 31, you can walk, run, bike, swim - whatever you choose - any length to show your support. You can walk in your neighborhood, at your fitness center or even the traditional walk route in Charleroi where walk route signs will be posted throughout the month. Do it on your own, with your family or even with a small group of people you feel comfortable with.

We encourage you to take a photo of how you choose to show your support and email it to me at We will feature our participants on Facebook throughout the month. We can't wait to see how creative you get with the event this year.
