Citizens walk for the cure

Juanita C. Pearley Special to The Donaldsonville Chief

It was a beautiful morning for a walk, and the participants enjoyed it very much as they took to the street walking for a cure for breast cancer.

The walk was organized by T. Michael Bailey of TMB Productions and Heidi Pearley of OneVoice and the turnout was fantastic for its first year.

Mayor Leroy Sullivan gave the welcome, followed by a prayer by City Councilman the Rev. Charles R. Brown, Sr., along with words of encouragement by Pastor Angel Nicholas. Juanita C. Pearley, Executive Director of the Donaldsonville Area Chamber of Commerce acknowledged the sponsors who helped to make the event such a success and Pastor Shannon Comery said the closing prayer.

Crossing the finish line first with strong competition to be first was DeVonte’ Guidry with Troy Cole just seconds behind her. Second to cross the finish line were Moniquek Gipson and Raymond Collins, Sr.

After the walk everyone was treated to jambalaya.

Bailey and Pearley said they want to thank all of the participants and sponsors, and they hope to make the event annual.
