Candle Lit Walk
Day in and day out the San Pedro Cancer Society is becoming more organized and working very hard in the promotion of creating awareness for the fight on cancer and assistance to those in need.

Today the San Pedro Cancer Society is inviting everyone to join them on World Cancer Awareness Day, February 4, 2011, in a candle lit walk around the main streets of San Pedro Town. The group’s main initiative is to create awareness about this disease and is not charging any fee for participation. All are welcome to join and show their support for the people fighting cancer, the ones who have survived it, and the ones who were taken too soon from us.

Participants of the Candle Lit Walk are asked to take a candle in honor of the person(s) they are walking for. The Society members will have T-shirts marking the occasion for sale at $20.00 each and orders can also be place before hand (a limited order was made). People are asked to wear the color of the cancer they are walking for if they do not purchase a T-shirt.

The Candle Lit Walk will commence at 5:30pm leaving from Central Park heading toward San Juan Area at the roundabout and doubling back through Pescador Drive and ending at the Lion's Club.

“We look forward to a great walk with a high participation from our community that is always there for others when it counts the most!” commented Monica Prevett, president of the San Pedro Cancer Society.
