The Circle of Victory Cancer Awareness Walk, hosted by Greene Medical Foundation, took place on October 1 at Apple Country Farm Market. About 350 people joined the walk, along with 22 vendors and food trucks, helping raise nearly $60,000 so far to help cancer patients.
The foundation announced the 2017-2018 ambassador, Rob Ryan, at the event. Rob was declared a survivor in September after an 18-month journey battling leukemia. Rob led the attendees in the 40-minute walk, and then was among several people who led the closing ceremony honoring survivors, those who had fallen ,and all caregivers. All gathered in a circle and released 700 balloons, the average number of people facing cancer on any given day in Greene County.
