SAN ANDREAS, CA – October 4, 2019 - Fancy pink footwear and Best of Shoe competitions will lighten the mood at an Oct. 24 event focusing on the tough subject of breast cancer.

Steps to Kick Cancer is an awareness event sponsored by Mark Twain Medical Center (MTMC). Guests will enjoy a complimentary sit down lunch while learning about local resources to diagnose, treat and triumph over breast cancer. Sacramento television personality Tina Macuha will share her breast cancer journey. She is a ten year survivor and has been part of CW 31’s “Good Day Sacramento” morning show since its inception in 1995.

Pink the signature color of Breast Cancer Awareness Month has many interpretations every October. In keeping with the Kick Cancer theme, footwear goes pink at this event. Guests are urged to wear pink shoes to vie for prizes.

The Best of Shoe Art Show is drawing entries from local groups, artists and crafters. Guests will choose their favorites among the array of work reflecting the Kick Cancer theme and prizes will be awarded.
