This year’s event will offer free healthcare screenings, flu shots, breast health education, Zumba and Tai Chi fitness, wellness booths and prizes.

The event will begin with a Memory Walk around Dole Park honoring friends and family members who have been affected by breast cancer.

“Our organization is fortunate to partner with Susan G. Komen each year to host this event for the Lāna’i community,” said Diana Shaw, LCHC executive director. “Beyond health and wellness, our hope is to encourage everyone in our community to eat healthy, get more exercise and schedule regular doctor visits and preventative screenings.”

Registration will open at 7 a.m. and the walk will begin promptly at 7:30 a.m. Participants are encouraged to wear pink.
