(Cancer Awareness March)….It was held Wednesday morning in Calexico.
Breast Cancer survivors, family and friends march through the City to the International Border. The March began at the Women’s Improvement Club. The over 50 marchers were met at the border by their counterparts in Mexicali. Hector Huerta, Deputy Consul at the Mexican Consulate in Calexico spoke briefly to the group at the border. He said health was important to all people, regardless of race or where they live. Huerta said learning prevention might be just as valuable as finding a cure. October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, with residents wearing pink, or at least a pink ribbon to show their support for Breast Cancer Awareness.
