A Walk with Angels

As the weather warms up in spring, the Kimberley Chance Atkins Foundation is planning an event to remember loved ones lost to breast cancer while raising funds for a mobile mamography unit.

The first ever Walk with Angels will take place on March 5 at the Georgia International Horse Park. The 8-mile course starts at the horse park, follows Gees Mill Road through the city and county, and ends at Olde Town Conyers.

Each mile represents a quality shown by those in the fight against breast cancer, such as strength, hope, courage, determination, faith, wisdom, love and support, and bravery. The Walk is not only in memory of those who have passed away from breast cancer, but is also a celebration of those fighting the disease.

Teams of four will be required to raise $1000 and individual walkers will need to raise $300 to enter the event. Prizes will be given for the most spirited team, most creative team and most money raised.

Proceeds will go towards purchasing a mobile mamography unit to help detect breast cancer in the community at an early stage. The foundation also holds an annual tennis tournament and has held other events to raise funds for the mamography unit. The Kimberley Chance Atkins Foundation was started in memory of the wife, mother, teacher, daughter and friend who died in 1999 at the age of 32 from breast cancer.
