Legacy Walk to Feature Special Guests on Saturday
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – Lucille O’Neal -- Shaq’s mom – will lead a walk in support of the Odessa Chambliss Center for Health Equity Initiative at this Saturday’s Bethune-Cookman football home opener at Municipal Stadium against Virginia Union.
Participants will walk on the stadium field as part of pregame ceremonies prior to the 4 p.m. kickoff against the Panthers. Free t-shirts will be provided to the first 100 pre-registrants.
A game ticket is required in addition to the registration.
O'Neal, who graduated magna cum laude with a Bachelor's in Business Administration from then-Bethune-Cookman College in May 2003, is spearheading the effort to to increase awareness of the causes and treatments for ovarian cancer, which kills approximately 15,000 women in the United States each year.
Among women in the United States, ovarian cancer is the eighth most common cancer and the fifth leading cause of cancer death, after lung, breast, colorectal, and pancreatic cancers. Ovarian cancer causes more deaths than any other cancer of the female reproductive system. When ovarian cancer is found in its early stages, treatment is most effective.
Saturday’s walk is part of a nation-wide effort for Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month.
