Pink Ribbon Walk kickoff party

Posted: Updated:

Atlanta leaders and the community are preparing for a special walk.

Wednesday night was the kickoff party for the Pink Ribbon Walk. Sisters By Choice sponsored the event. It provides education, awareness and support for women diagnosed with breast cancer.

Event organizers hope this year's walk will help accomplish another goal.

"We are trying to raise money for a mobile clinic," said Terri Wiggins, Sisters By Choice board member. "We would like to place that mobile clinic in underserved areas so men and women who need examinations, breast exams and also need minor treatment would have access to that mobile facility."

The annual Pink Ribbon Walk takes place at Piedmont Park on Saturday, July 19 beginning at 8 a.m.
