Since 2003, the Lois Orange Ducoeur Breast Cancer Walk has taken place in downtown Charleroi, PA. The 1-2 mile fun walk takes place annually in October and raises funds for the area’s local cancer center and awareness initiatives. Named for one of the community’s original business owners, Lois Orange Ducoeur, this year’s event raised nearly $9,000.
The Team Charleroi Business and Community Alliance, an organization operating in conjunction with the Mon Valley Regional Chamber of Commerce presented a monetary gift of $4,450 to the PA Breast Cancer Coalition on January 25, 2011.
Thanks to efforts of its Grassroots Partners, the PBCC is able to keeps it doors open and offer services to the women and families fighting breast cancer in Pennsylvania. Thank you again to Team Charleroi for their efforts!
