Hike Badger Mountain and Rise Above Cancer

Posted: Updated:

RICHLAND, WA. Organizers say they expect at least 100 people will lace up their hiking shoes, grab a balloon, and walk up Badger Mountain Saturday morning to support the Northwest Cancer Clinic.

The helium balloons will be available for five dollars at the trailhead and the Northwest Cancer Clinic will match each balloon donation. All proceeds will go to Focus on Cancer, a non-profit charity group based in Walla Walla.

"They'll be sending the funds to people that qualify for mammograms," says Nick Cameron, marketing director at the Northwest Cancer Clinic.

Once at the top of Badger Mountain, Cameron says there will be a brief ceremony in honor of cancer patients, survivors and families.

The first 100 walkers will receive a Rising Above Cancer Tee-shirt.

The walk begins at 10 a.m. at Badger Mountain Trailhead Park at 525 Queensgate in Richland.
