Fourth Annual CCI Walk for the Cure

Fourth Annual CCI Walk for the Cure

Staff and offenders recently participated in the 4th Annual Walk for the Cure conducted at the Chillicothe Correctional Institution. Several offenders spoke about how cancer has touched their lives and how important it is to be a part of this worthwhile event. An offender stated, “I know people probably don’t understand but this walk means the world to me. Something so small but makes a difference. Cancer has touched everyone’s life in one way or another, incarcerated or not. I’m glad staff permit us to participate in this event every year”. Radio personality, Dan Remy, (IHeart Radio) was on hand again this year on behalf of the Southern Ohio Survivor Association and interviewed a few of the offenders about how cancer has affected their lives.
