Mission, TX – On Saturday, October 20th, the grounds at Mission Regional Medical Center will resemble a sea of pink.  That’s when thousands of people from across the Rio Grande Valley will meet on the south side of the hospital to take a stand against Breast Cancer and walk to save lives in the Ninth Annual Mission Pink Walk/Run for Breast Cancer Awareness and treatment.

An estimated 4,000 people are expected to participate in this year’s event. Previously in 2016 more than 3,200 people of all ages registered for the walk.  It is one of the largest breast cancer walks in the Rio Grande Valley and draws people from as far away as Houston, Dallas, San Antonio, and Monterrey.

Twenty-five percent of the proceeds will provide Free Digital Screening Mammograms to uninsured women over the age of 40 who live in the Rio Grande Valley. The remaining funds benefit the Foundation at Mission Regional Medical Center, which continues to have a vision of serving and making a positive impact to the Rio Grande Valley community. The Mission Regional Medical Center is still a non-profit organization and the foundation is still intact.

“I would like to cordially invite everyone in the community to take part at this life-changing event. Let us show our support to every woman as we walk/run together in the fight against breast cancer. Together we can win!” says Kane Dawson, CEO, Mission Regional Medical Center.

An estimated one out of every eight women born today will be diagnosed with breast cancer at some time in their lives, according to the National Cancer Institute.
