Walkers needed to fight breast cancer

The Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk will take place Sunday, Oct. 21, at Roger Williams Park Zoo. A Jamestown team is looking for more members to participate in the event in support of Karen Rafanelli, a Melrose Avenue School teacher who has been inflicted by breast cancer. The team will meet at 931 Jefferson Boulevard at 8:30 a.m. A bus will shuttle walkers to the park. Anyone interested should email Susan Baccari at sbaccari@cox.net. There is also a link to make a donation to the American Cancer Society (MakingStrides.com). The team name is Breast Friends Unite. Checks should be made out to the America Cancer Society. T-shirts will also be available for purchase. For more information, call 419-7776.
