Local Deltas sponsor walk for Breast Cancer Awareness

Greene County Deltas gather with Eutaw Mayor Steele, students and community folk for Breast Cancer Awareness Walk.

The Greene County Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. organized a community walk to call attention to the need to become more informed about breast cancer disease and approaches to preventive care. The “Walk” was also designed to celebrate cancer survivors in the sorority chapter, the community and across the globe.
Many community residents, including Eutaw mayor Raymond Steele and high school students, joined the sorority members on the Old Courthouse Square, Saturday, October 2, 2010 from 8:00 AM to 10:00 AM. Participants walked the square at their personal pace and duration. A variety of literature on Breast Cancer Awareness, pink wrist bands saluting cancer survivors, stickers and ribbons were also distributed.
At the close of the event, the sorority members released bouquets of pink helium filled balloons to mark the occasion.
Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. is a public service sorority dedicated to sponsoring and supporting community projects that inform and uplift the community..
