The purpose of the event, as in each of the previous runnings of its predecessors is to raise awareness and funds for the fight against breast cancer here in Seminole County. Steffey’s mom, the late Anne Coirini, is the namesake for Mom’s Mile. Anne was diagnosed with breast cancer in November of 2004 after a routine mammogram.
“This annual fundraiser directly benefits our community by providing FREE Mammograms at Donalsonville Hospital every October and we need your support this year more than ever. Come joins us!” added Vines.
