In May, the American Heart Association and Susan B. Komen hold their annual events.
Susan B. Komen's Race for the Cure draws thousands of families each year in support of cancer victims and survivors. Two years ago, the African American Breast Cancer Alliance (AABCA) became a partner and you you can donate and participate in the events and designate your contributions the AABCA. FMBC has several families that participate and if you are interested in being a part of the morning walk, see Sister Beverly or Sister Victoria.
Early detection of cancer increases longevity.
The American Heart Association sponsors a Heart Walk for at risk families and lost ones. Last year, their Heart Walk started downtown and the Target Center and pledges were taken by Brother Fred Estes for Carmen Lynell Smith Wilson. This year, Dr. Juanita Benton, FMBC member and Psychologist at North Point Health Center, has signed on for the 5-10k walk. If you are interested in walking or donating, see Sister Beverly.
