Inmates to Participate in Breast Cancer Walk
(Goffstown, NH) Female Offenders at the New Hampshire State Prison for Women in Goffstown participate in the annual American Cancer Society’s “Making Strides Against Breast Cancer” walk in the prison’s recreational yard on Sunday, October 19, 2008. Warden Joanne Fortier announced that seventy women would walk around the yard thirty-four times, which is the equivalent of five miles. This is the second year in a row the inmates have participated in this event.
The annual Making Strides Against Breast Cancer is a non-competitive walk to help fight breast cancer and give hope to those facing the disease. New Hampshire Department of Corrections employees have participated in the past and new teams have been formed to walk in local events. In Concord at least twenty DOC employees have signed up to participate in the walk that begins at Memorial Field.
