Breast cancer awareness month kicks off at capitol | Events
National Breast Cancer Awareness month has arrived and a local organization is kicking off the month at the capitol.
The Susan G. Komen for the Cure in South Central Wisconsin holds their kick-off event on the King Street steps Saturday at noon.
Survivors, co-survivors, law enforcement officials, Mayor Paul Soglin, Dane County Sheriff Dave Mahoney, South Milwaukee Police Chief Ann Wellens and Attorney General JB Van Hollen will attend the event, said a press release. The Honor Guard will begin the program with a moment of silence for those that were lost to the disease.
The kick-off event includes a parade of survivors around the capitol. Proceeds will go to local breast health and breast cancer programming funded by the Wisconsin Affiliates of Susan G. Komen for the Cure.
