More than 400 participants - including these breast cancer survivors - filled the Charleroi Market House earlier this month for the 10th Annual MVH/Lois Orange Ducoeur Breast Cancer Walk.

"It's more than just a walk now, people really look forward to this event," said MVH Director of Fund Development, Melissa Marion, who led the committee organizing the event. "People come to honor their loved ones, they come to walk in support of survivors and each other; they walk as co-workers and families, plus they get more and more creative with their pink outfits. I think there is a real sense of community here."

Proceeds from the annual one- or two-mile fun walk benefit Monongahela Valley Hospital's Charles L. & Rose Sweeney Melenyzer Pavilion and Regional Cancer Center. The event raised more than $14,000.

The Breast Cancer Walk was created to honor the memory of Lois Orange Ducoeur, who lost her battle with cancer in 1965 at age 54. The Ducoeur family operated two stores in Charleroi for 118 years.
