This will be the 8th Annual Run/Walk in Petersburg, kicking off Community Day. Over $65k has been raised in memory of Rose Marie Hunt. Rose was a Petersburg native who lost her battle with breast cancer in 2009 at the age of 54.
All proceeds from this Petersburg event will go to Metastatic Breast Cacncer research at The University of Michigan Comprehensive Cancer Care Center in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Dr. Sofia Merajver is a top researcher in the country who's goal throughout her career has been to find a cure for this cancer.
A portion of the proceeds will also benefit the amazing volunteer fire department in Petersburg. Community Day is a fundraiser for this department and we full support the equipment and training of the men and women who volunteer their time to be the community's first responders.
