Breast Cancer Canal Walk scheduled for Sunday

LOCKPORT – The 19th annual Mother’s Day Breast Cancer Canal Walk will start with registration at 11 a.m. Sunday at the Goehle-Widewaters Marina pavilon on Market Street.

The walk, which gets underway at 1 p.m., will use the Erie Canalway Trail and part of Market Street for 1-mile and 2-mile routes.

There is no advance registration for walkers, who are urged to line up pledges in advance. All walkers who donate at least $25 will receive a T-shirt and gift bag. There is no fee for registration.
