INDIAN RIVER COUNTY -
Close to 500 people, many adorned in pink, came out to Indian River Medical Center's "How Sweet It Is" event at Indian River Mall on Oct. 4. A pink event in honor of breast cancer awareness month, the event is designed to encourage awareness for women's health topics.
IRMC, a member of the Spirit of Women Hospital Network, had multiple booths there from women and heart care, to women and cancer, orthopedics, wound healing, bariatrics and more.
The first 100 people received swag bags that included an IRMC pink lunch tote, commemorative breast cancer pen, educational literature and other mall offers. The mall was decorated in pink, with endless delectable desserts and appetizers available.
One highlight was some good-looking men, including IRMC's own Felix Bigay and George Fyffe, in red high heels publicizing the "Walk a Mile in Her Shoes" event that will be held at IRMC on Oct. 27 beginning at 8:30 a.m. to raise awareness of SafeSpace's mission to halt domestic violence.
John Walsh, host and creator of TV's "America's Most Wanted," is the honorary chairman for the event. The walk will begin and end at IRMC's new Partners in Women's Health building, 1050 37th Place, suites 101/102.
Attendees will have an opportunity to meet the OB/GYN physician group members and staff, tour the new office and enjoy light refreshments at the conclusion of the walk.
