RENO — Revivals Health & Wellness Council is partnering with Hug High School at its “Football of Faith” home game in celebration of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Hug will honor breast cancer survivors to promote breast health awareness.
This is Hug’s first show of support for Revivals in its effort to continue the Keeping the Faith Breast Cancer Survivors’ Luncheon, which will be held on Oct. 22 at John Ascuaga’s Nugget in Sparks. The celebration is an annual event to celebrate breast cancer survivors and to honor the memory of those who have died of the disease. The event is named for Faith Fancher, who was a senior reporter with KTVU TV in Oakland, Calif. She allowed KTVU to report on her breast cancer fight to encourage women to be vigilant, to be tested and to be brave. This is the eighth celebration and more than 300 people are expected to attend.
Revivals Health & Wellness Council is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to ensure that Northern Nevada residents are made aware of existing health services. This mission is accomplished by distributing health education materials at various events, assisting target organizations in their fundraising efforts, establishing venues for agencies to promote health education, providing financial supplements associated with health screening and treatments and by celebrating wellness.
