Twin Peaks Preservation Stroll

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month.

On Sunday, October 4, 2015 at 10:00 am, the 2nd annual 5K Walk/Stroll supporting Breast Cancer Research will step off at the Charlestown Rathskeller.

Registration begins at 9:30 am and light refreshments will be served after the cancer walk.

Pat Ready, a breast cancer survivor of 21 years and Nancy Ringler, a breast cancer survivor of two years have joined forces to bring cancer awareness to Southern Rhode Island. All proceeds will go to the American Cancer Society to fight all cancers.

These two brave survivors are to be commended for increasing cancer awareness, the need for early detection and finding a cure for this horrific disease that affects so many.

Last year, they raised $8,000 for the American Cancer Society and want to double that donation for this year.

To reach that goal, they have received corporate donations from the following Charlestown businesses: Charlestown Rathskeller (Host), Kingstown Turf Farms, Tom Ready & Sons Excavating, All-Ready Septic Service, Jackson Surveying, ABRI Construction, Randall Reality, Motterstitch Co., Pat’s Power Equipment, Larlham Landscape Contruction Co., Air Metal Work, Gough Landscaping and Excavation, Stastiunas Companies, Rich and Nancy Ringler, Washington County Physical Therapy, Beaches and Backroads Reality, Mutley’s Dog Grooming and Jordan Plumbing and Mechanical. Donations are welcome.

T-shirts for the event are $15.

Tom Ready will sing an original song that he has composed in honor of these two brave cancer survivors.

Representative Blake Filippi has been asked to speak at the event.

Pat Ready and Nancy Ringler embody the true spirit of Charlestown by giving back selflessly to the Town of Charlestown. Support their walk and join them on Saturday, October 4, 2015, as I will walk with them,” said Tom Gentz at the September Town Council meeting
