Ness Pumping Service Annual Breast Cancer Awareness Walk is this Saturday

Ness Pumping and Porta Potty Rentals will host its annual Breast Cancer Awareness Walk Saturday, October 21 in the Waukon City Park to raise funds for breast cancer awareness and detection.

The event will begin at 10 a.m. and go until Noon.  Participants may come and go as they please that morning and can choose to walk with friends, family or on their own. Walk-in participants are welcome.

Breast Cancer survivors will be asked to sign a pink porta potty sporting the breast cancer ribbon. Event sweatshirts will be available for sale and light refreshments will also be offered for a free-will donation.

Historically, the Ness family has granted proceeds to the Veterans Memorial Health Care Foundation to support the local mammography program. Last year the hospital did purchase a new 3D Mammography machine with the help of these funds. To schedule a mammogram exam, or for questions about this important breast health procedure, contact the Veterans Memorial Hospital Radiology Department at 563-568-3411.
