3rd Annual Las Vegas Caravan for Mammogram convenes October 3

Las Vegas Black Image Magazine is proud to commemorate Breast Cancer Awareness Month with the 3rd Annual Las Vegas Caravan for Mammogram on October 3, 2020. The socially-distanced event will again focus on the health of Black women — who are more likely than their white counterparts to die of breast cancer, and can save their lives with strong preventative measures.

This free event will bring local and national awareness to the benefits of good breast health practices, with ladies gathering in the parking lot of Dr. Annette Mayes’ Las Vegas All Women’s Care office at 700 Shadow Lane. Each participant will receive a free pink bag filled with decorations for their individual cars. Once the decorations are complete, the women will raise awareness with a parade-formation caravan down the Las Vegas Strip.

According to founder and coordinator Kimberly Bailey Tureaud, “Las Vegas Black Image Magazine is very excited to have ladies join us for Las Vegas Caravan for Mammogram in its third year. This is a wonderful opportunity for encouraging women of color to take care of their breast health through healthy preventative action.”

For additional information on participating in this free event, call (702) 810-5631.
