There was power in the color pink Monday afternoon, as a group of people participated in the “Planet Pink” Cancer Awareness Walk in downtown Corbin. Over $300 was raised in the Tri-County for cancer research during the walk, according to Carcille Burchette of the Laurel Gardens Club, the organization who created the event. All proceeds from the walk will go to the American Cancer Society.
Before the walk began, registration was held at the shelter of the First Christian Church on Poplar Avenue. “Planet Pink” T-shirts were a hot item for those walking to fight cancer and raise awareness about the disease.
