The Coulee Medical Center Guild will kick off its plans for a Breast Cancer Run at the upcoming Harvest Festival, Sept. 17-18.

Guild President Clea Pryor said her group will have a booth at the festival site - North Dam Park - and will register people who wish to take part.

The run is to call attention to breast cancer, Pryor stated. Registration cost is $15, and those taking part will receive a T-shirt with an appropriate message on it.

The Oct. 8 run will begin at CMC and go to North Dam Park and back.

In other activity, the Guild is planning two book sales, one Nov. 2 and the other Dec. 9. Both will be in the hospital lobby and will run from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.

The Guild has set aside some $6,000 to purchase a shower liner for one of the rooms at the hospital.

Pryor also reported that in the 2015 summer shoe drive, the Guild collected over 3,000 pairs of shoes for people in developing countries.
