The Penn Highlands Mon Valley Lois Orange Ducoeur Breast Cancer Walk is a Valley favorite that women, men, children and even pets turn out for every year — rain or shine. The 2022 event, which is scheduled for Saturday, October 8, at 10:00 AM, promises to be bigger and better than ever. 

The Walk has moved to the Center for Fitness and Health in the Penn Highlands Mon Valley HealthPlex, on Route 51, in Rostraver Township. Participants and guests can complete the Walk in the safety of a marked course free from motor vehicle traffic. In addition, the new site provides ample space to accommodate the walkers and those attending for the festivities.  

"Practically everyone knows someone whose life has been touched by breast cancer," said Natalie Furgiuele, MD, a breast surgeon with Penn Highlands Mon Valley. "Our annual Walk makes a statement that our community is united to fight this disease. It shows that we all have the ability to care for and support those battling breast cancer."

Walkers are asked to make a minimum donation of $20 each to participate. Often, participants collect donations from family, friends and neighbors who cannot participate.  Registration for the Walk is available prior to the event at or the day of the event beginning at 9:00AM. 

As in the past, the Walk will have an atmosphere of excitement and hope. Musical entertainment, motivational remarks from Dr. Furgiuele, vendors and refreshments will be part of the festivities. A highlight will be the special recognition for breast cancer survivors at the start of the event.

This year’s proceeds will benefit the Hahne Cancer Center at Penn Highlands Mon Valley, with the purchase of a clip marker system, for mammography biopsies. This system will improve the quality and accuracy of diagnostics and therapy for patients. Proceeds will also help to purchase an interface upgrade, to the Center’s vital sign machines. The upgrade will automatically add the patient’s vital signs to their electronic health record; thus providing the healthcare professional more face-to-face time with the patient.
