Think Pink at Riverside Arts Market, Oct 8th


This weekend is Health Awareness Week at RAM. While there is so much that we should be aware of, October is most notably known as Breast Cancer Awareness month.  Please join RAM and participate by wearing pink to recognize and appreciate the women and men who have had to endure this hardship. The North Florida affiliate of the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure will be at the Market to celebrate breast cancer survivors. Additionally, representatives from UF & Shand’s clinics will be on hand providing free basic health tests such as blood sugar, blood pressure, and body mass index.
