SeHealth schedules Breast Cancer Awareness events

A pink ribbon  

Throughout the month of October, SeHealth is sponsoring initiatives designed to promote awareness, prevention, and early detection as part of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

 Businesses are invited to decorate with pink and community members are encouraged to wear pink shoes or shoelaces as they walk for exercise throughout the month.

 On Thursday, Southeastern Health will host a virtual lighting of a pink ribbon atop of Southeastern Regional Medical Center (SRMC) in Lumberton. Due to the pandemic, the virtual event will not have an in-person audience but will be live-streamed on Facebook beginning at 7:15 p.m.

During Go Pink Week, which is Oct. 5-9, individuals are encouraged to participate in the following:

  • Oct. 5: Turn their social media pink
  • Oct. 6: Wear pink
  • Oct. 7: Wear a pink face mask or face covering; form a small team and walk for the cause. Remember to socially distance or wear a face covering when in groups.
  • Oct. 8: SeHealth employees can donate $5 to the SeHealth Foundation and wear denim to work.
  • Oct. 9: A pink smoothie demonstration will be posted to SeHealth’s Community Health Services page on Facebook.

On Sunday, Oct. 18, churches and church leaders are encouraged to wear pink for their services, whether inside or outside, along with masks and social distancing efforts.

From Oct. 19 to Oct. 23, Biggs Park Mall and SeHealth’s Community Health Education Center will host “Walktober,” where participants can sign in at CHEC and walk five laps around the mall, which is one mile, and sign out at CHEC to be entered into a prize drawing. Walkers are encouraged to wear pink, and a winner will be drawn on Oct. 23.

Mammogram Madness will be held at SeHealth’s Southeastern Radiology Associates on Saturday, Oct. 24, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Women ages 40 to 74 who have not had their annual screening mammogram may walk-in or pre-register for clinical exams and mammograms in advance by calling (910) 671-4000.

To schedule a screening mammogram at Southeastern Radiology Associates, call (910) 671-4000.
