Rising Above Cancer

The Northwest Cancer Clinic and Focus on Cancer are honoring breast cancer awareness month with the Rising Above Cancer benefit.

People from throughout the Tri-Cities gathered at Badger Mountain in Richland to hike to the top where a brief ceremony took place to honor patients, survivors and families who have dealt with breast cancer.

Pink balloons were sold for $5 and all proceeds will go to providing mammograms for women in the Tri-Cities.

Nearly 100 people took part in the event and more than $2,000 was raised.
