  • Staff Report

    Leslie De Grez of Campbellsville says a lot of people wonder what walking 60 miles has to do with finding a cure for breast cancer.

    "Well, it's bold, and that's what it will take to find a cure," she said.

    On Aug. 8-10, De Grez participated in an event called the Breast Cancer 3-Day in Chicago, Ill.

    The event, hosted in several large cities across the nation, supports breast cancer research, education, screening and treatment through the Susan G. Komen for the Cure and the National Philanthropic Trust Breast Cancer Fund.
