Walking to fight breast cancer in Port Hope

By PETE FISHER, Northumberland Today

The 19th annual Candlelight Walk for breast-cancer research took place starting at the Port Hope United Church on Friday in Port Hope.

The walk is a celebration of survival, a tribute to the lives of loved ones, a walk of friendship and friends, with a goal to one day end breast cancer, said organizer Danielle Kennedy.

The event so far has raised more than $174,000 for the Canadian Cancer Society and its breast-cancer research.

This year's honourees were Edith Carr and Erin Hathway.
