Melbourne, KY—St. Philip Church Health Ministries and St. Elizabeth Healthcare will sponsor the seventh Annual Kate Geiger Memorial Breast Cancer Walk on Sunday, October 20 at Pendery Park in Melbourne, Kentucky. The walk will begin at 10:30 a.m. with registration beginning at 9:30 a.m. Registration is $15 for adults and $10 for students.

All proceeds from this event remain local, aiding the Holbrook-Minning Fund through the St. Elizabeth Foundation, which provides financial assistance to cancer patients. All donations are fully tax deductible as allowed by law. Last year, the event raised more than $8,000. St. Henry High School has been involved with the event since 2008 with between 80-100 participants. The school’s art department made and raffled off a corn hole set and the girls cross country team participates each year.

The route is 2.5 miles around Pendery Park. Runners, walkers, strollers, bicyclists, and pets on a leash are welcome. Open to all ages, the first 250 registrants will receive a gift bag, and every participant will have an opportunity to win special prizes. The event will also feature a mini health fair with blood pressure screenings and flu shots.

Born in 1952, Kate Geiger was very active in the Northern Kentucky community through St. Philip Church and Bishop Brossart High School. Kate passed away from cancer when she was only 54. This walk honors her memory and all those who battle breast cancer every year.
