Jul 1, 2015 | Community News

Despite the June heat and humidity, East Ridge at Cutler Bay’s Wellness Center held a successful Cancer Awareness Walk to the community’s lily pond in June.

Cancer awareness bags with tea lights were placed around the East Ridge lily pond by residents and employees. Everyone was invited to write tributes on the bags for cancer survivors or as a memorial.

“We wanted to acknowledge cancer survivors and anyone who has battled the disease,” said Suzana Delgado, East Ridge at Cutler Bay’s Wellness Coordinator. “This was a community-wide effort and involved our residents, employees, families and friends of East Ridge. Money raised from donations were given to the American Cancer Society.
