The Women of Steel are busy preparing for their 5th annual 5K Run/Walk in the Park for Breast and Prostate Cancer.
It's a family friendly event, with a bean-bag tournament and displays of classic cars.
Chair of Women of Steel, Tammy Renzaglia, said that their group picked breast cancer as their community project, and they wanted to do something to give back. Everyone knows someone affected.
"It is personal," she said. "My sister-in-law died from breast cancer 11 years ago today."
Prostate cancer was added to the event when the Women of Steel heard that many men from Minorca Mine were being diagnosed with the disease.
The race has raised more than $50,000 in the past four years. The money is going to Care Partners and the Hope Fund, which are both local organizations that help people with cancer and other life-limiting illnesses.
Come join the fun on Saturday, September 13th. The race starts at 9, and the beanbags start at 10.
Renzaglia said they have reserved the Miners Memorial Building in case of bad weather.
