Celebrate PINK DAY!
Stop by the Dalton Green for a free gift, a cookie, and a cup of pink lemonade! Health and beauty vendors will be on site giving free chair massages and acupuncture sessions. A free yoga class will be held at 11:30am.
Hamilton Medical Center will host a Pink Day event on Friday, Oct. 19 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Dalton Green (corner of Waugh St. and Thornton Ave.).
Supporting breast cancer awareness, Dalton Mayor Dennis Mock will officially proclaim Oct. 19 as Pink Day in Dalton. The proclamation is scheduled for 11:30 a.m.
The event will include a free gift (while supplies last), cookies, pink lemonade, yoga demonstration (following the proclamation), chair massages, acupuncture and nail painting. Health and beauty vendors will be onsite as well, and Mix 104.5 will broadcast live from the event.
Regular breast self-exams, clinical breast exams and mammograms (based on age and health history) are recommended as the best way to detect breast cancer in the early stages.
“With October being Breast Cancer Awareness Month, it’s a good time to be proactive,” said Rachel Ogle, marketing outreach manager for Hamilton Health Care System. “Nobody wants to hear a diagnosis of breast cancer, but early detection can make a huge difference.”
Some habits that can help reduce risk for breast cancer are maintaining a healthy weight, staying physically active, eating fruits and vegetables, not smoking and limiting alcohol consumption.
