Area Events: Walk A Mile In Her Heels

16 Oct

As many of you are aware, October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, and seemingly everywhere there’s a splash of pink reminding people to contribute towards eradicating this disease. That spirit will be on display at Myrtle Beach Mall on October 25th when the mall and McLeod Health partner up to present “Walk A Mile In Her Heels”, a fundraising event supporting the Horry County Susan G. Komen For The Cure foundation.

Beginning that morning at 9:00 am, participants are invited to meet up in the parking lot to be part of a giant pink human ribbon. Pink-themed refreshments will be served and door prizes will be awarded. The festivities continue with local artist Scott Kingston will create a painting utilizing help from guests of the event.  Throughout the afternoon, McLeod Health, Coastal Cancer Center will be on site to answer questions and to perform free medical screenings to guests who qualify.

The main part of the event begins at 4:00 pm with the one-mile “Walk A Mile In Her Heels” trek taking place within the Myrtle Beach Mall. Registration is $10 ($12 day of the event) and participants receive a free t-shirt. Retailers will also be offering special discounts and deals to all who participate as well as giving out door prizes. Refreshments will be served afterward in front of the Ladies Belk Store.
