-Organizers say that tomorrow’s fundraising “Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk” will still go on despite what could be some challenging weather. Charlene Lund with the American Cancer Society says that some changes will be made to the schedule for tomorrow to make participants more comfortable should weather conditions be inclement. Registration will still be at 9:00 a.m. The list of speakers could change, since some are coming from out of town and adjustments might have to be made to the schedule as needed. Lund says there will still be music, entertainment, food, a pink market place and a breast cancer survivor’s reception area. Since winds are expected to be brisk tomorrow, the walk route has been changed to avoid Hilger’s Gulch. Lund says the route will be explained at the South Dakota Visitors Center before the walk starts at noon. The walk will loop around the Capitol and around the Governor’s Residence for a 3K walk and loop twice for a 5K walk. Those that have questions for tomorrow’s American Cancer Society Making Strides Walk can contact the ACS in Pierre at 224-6772.
