Linden at Murrieta to host inaugural breast cancer awareness walk 

MURRIETA, Calif., — The Linden at Murrieta was excited today to announce they will be hosting “Walk For The Pink Ribbon”, a walk for breast cancer awareness on Friday, Oct. 22, from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m. 

The event, which will feature live entertainment, a food truck, giveaways, and t-shirts for guests, is intended to raise awareness for breast cancer and create community for local seniors.

LEADING THE RCNS HEADLINES:

Motorcyclist, 18, ID’d after fatal Perris crash

Elderly Moreno Valley man fatally struck by tow truck

Burned beyond recognition victim remains unidentified after deadly Riverside crash

DUI suspected in fatal crash with partial ejection that killed Menifee passenger, 29

Botched Hemet robbery ends in death of one suspect, arrest of second man

During the event, residents and participants will walk along a designated path around the community, as Thunder, the rambunctious and oft-troublemaking mascot for the Lake Elsinore Storm Baseball Team, and others cheer them on. In addition to the music, live entertainment and great food planned for the event, guests will also be treated to photo ops with the Storm’s well-known mascot, according to event organizers.

Next Friday’s breast cancer awareness walk is being hosted by Linden at Murrieta, a Leisure Care senior living community that offers independent and assisted living, as well as Alzheimer’s, dementia, and memory care for its residents. The community features a range of senior care services, chef-prepared meals, and a variety of entertainment options and daily social activities for its residents, all within a comfortable and inviting, home-like setting.

“This walk will be a lot of fun, it’s for a good cause, and it’s uniquely designed with seniors in mind,” says Jennifer Yokum, Sales Advisor for the Linden at Murrieta. “Our community members will be raising awareness for breast cancer, socializing, and staying active, all in our space that prioritizes seniors’ walking needs.”  

This event is co-sponsored by the Linden at Murrieta and the Lake Elsinore Storm Baseball Team, along with Dr. Amy Miller, Brightstar, Great Life Senior Care, Vitas, Accent Home Care, Habitat for Humanity, Shella Care, and Sonata Hospice. 

While this is an outdoor event, to enter the facility, guests will be asked to show proof of COVID-19 vaccination or negative COVID test results within 72 hours of the event.
