October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and walking has been a big way for supporters to help raise money. COVID-19 has stopped the physical strides, but one cancer organization is stepping out in another way.
Jodi Beasley is a senior community development manager at the American Cancer Society.
She said the Rockford community will do a pinwheel tribute garden in lieu of an annual walk.
“Where our participants can still register, raise some funds,"she explains, "but then also purchase a pinwheel in support of, in memory of or in honor of, a cancer survivor.”
