Hundreds of people came out Saturday to support and participate in the annual Monongahela Valley Hospital Lois Orange Ducoeur Breast Cancer Walk in Charleroi.

Funds raised will benefit patients at Mon Valley Hospital's Charles L. & Rose Sweeney Melenyzer Pavilion and Regional Cancer Center.

This was the first year Mon Valley Hospital staff organized the event, taking over the reigns from the Mon Valley Regional Chamber of Commerce, which continues to lend support.

The breast cancer walk was created to honor the memory of Lois Orange Ducoeur, who lost her battle with cancer in 1965 at age 54. The Ducoeur family operated Orange's Gift store and Ducoeur Furniture Store in Charleroi for 118 years.
