Pink Pride Walk hits Howland Park


HOWLAND, Ohio (WKBN) – The goal to eradicate breast cancer continues strong here in the Valley.

The stage was set in Howland Township Park for the first annual Pink Pride Walk. Volunteers gathered pledges, and then hit the trail Sunday to show their support.

The walk included entertainment, featuring comedians and a rapper.

All money raised will benefit the Susan G. Komen Foundation.

“We are just asking for a registration fee of $30. If they want additional pledges, they can bring them in,” said Jennifer Martinek, Phoenix X-treme Cheer. “Our goal is to try to raise at least $3,000.”

The event was organized by Phoenix X-treme Cheer, which is a group based out of Liberty that trains cheerleaders for competition.
