The West Virginia University Physicians of Charleston organization invites you to join them as they celebrate and honor children from the Charleston area who have been affected by children's cancer by sponsoring the 2013 CureSearch Walk.
The walk will take place on Saturday, Sept. 21, at the University of Charleston Stadium at Laidley Field in Charleston. It will include prizes, music, food and fun activities for the entire family.
Walk event registration and check-in begins at 9 a.m. The opening ceremony and walk begins at 10 a.m.
The walk is part of a month of events to raise awareness and encourage fundraising.
President Barack Obama declared the month of September "National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month," and Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin read a proclamation at the Governor's mansion earlier this month to kick off the awareness campaign here in the state of West Virginia.
