The Puppy Creek Fire Department is excited to announce our 3rd Annual Breast Cancer Awareness 5K. The 5K is a chance to get out for a jog with your neighbors, family and friends and raise awareness and money towards getting free breast exams, wig assistance and other breast cancer related oppurtunities for Hoke county residents who don't have the resources to do so. Our goal is to raise awareness of breast cancer and generate interest in donating some money and educating the public on breast cancer and ways to identify it and work through it.
