In Photos: Walk honors cancer patients while raising money for the future

The age-old saying goes, there is strength in numbers. When it comes to figuring out the future of cancer research and treatment options, the Georgia Cancer Center has a team made up of hundreds of community members supporting its mission.

This support led to a record-breaking total for a fundraising event that’s only in its second year. We are happy to report the cancer center collected more than $75,000 during 2019 Unite in the Fight Against Cancer.

Unite in the Fight Against Cancer is a 1.5-mile walk starting at Lucy C. Laney High School’s football stadium that winds through Augusta University’s Health Sciences Campus and ends back at the stadium. This year’s walk was held on a chilly and windy Saturday morning, Nov. 9. But the weather did not impact the excitement, the smiles and the honor of walking to support cancer survivors and to remember those who lost their lives to this terrible disease.

We would like to share a photo gallery of this year’s event and encourage you to sign up for next year’s walk when registration opens in 2020. Also, donations for this year’s event will be accepted until the end of the year so consider making a donation, if you’d like to support the cancer center.
