Cancer walk across Missouri ends today
Saturday, June 9, 2007
Seven women walking across Missouri to raise money for cancer research end their 450-mile journey at the Mississippi River in Cape Girardeau today.
Carrie Pendley, Cathy Phipps, Rhoda Netherton, Tammy Myers and Sarah Myers, Kim Kinnard and Debbie Loewe will leave the Pear Tree Inn on William Street at 8 a.m., joined by a police escort, and proceed down Farrar Drive. From there they plan to walk Independence Street to Sunset Boulevard, then Lacey Street past Southeast Missouri Hospital to Broadway, where they will complete their walk across the state.
The women began walking in support of Pendley, who beat separate attacks of ovarian, breast and brain-stem cancers.
