Residents Ask for Help at Breast Cancer Walk
Three to walk 39.5 miles over two days.
For several years local residents Dana Dudukovich, Debbie Crusco and Mary Gatto made it their mission to bring awareness to breast cancer by taking part in the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer in New York City.
They are hoping the community will support them again this year, as Dana and Mary's daughters Danee Dudukovich and Nicole Gatto join them. Both of the girls are juniors at Jefferson Township High School.
Each got involved for different reasons, Dana and Mary to show support to dear friends who thankfully today are survivors. Debbie got involved when another local resident Natalie Moretti formed a team of youth football moms to walk for so many.
The ladies are hoping to raise $10,000 and to complete a marathon and a half, 39.5 over 2 days on Oct. 20 and 21.
The Avon Foundation for Breast Cancer gives funds raised to local charities and hospitals.
