Pink tow truck to lead cancer walk

MALONE — A pink tow truck will lead the 5K walk through downtown Malone Saturday, raising awareness of breast cancer and money to help those who have the disease.

Scott Smith had the truck specially painted to increase awareness about breast cancer.

Registration begins at 9 a.m. at Scott Smith’s Towing’s garage on Railroad Street, and the walk starts at 10 a.m.

The towing company is sponsoring the event. 

The entry fee for the 5K walk is $15 per person and free for anyone younger than age 12. Participants will receive a breast-cancer awareness water bottle, while supplies last.

A silent auction is also planned, along with the sale of T-shirts. Free coffee, hot chocolate and cappuccino will be provided.

All money raised will go to the Hope Lodge in Burlington, which offers overnight stays to those who receive outpatient cancer treatment at Fletcher Allen Health Care.

The 5K walk begins at the towing garage and continues to Brewster Street then onto Main Street and on to the corner of Main and Raymond streets.

The course will then backtrack to Main and Brewster before ending back at the towing garage.

For more information, call Cindy Wemette at 481-7823.
