Residents at the Premont Rehab and Nursing Center held their first ever walk for breast cancer awareness Tuesday.

35 residents decked themselves in pink and walked around the football stadium across the street a few times for their Pinktober Walk. Those who live at the rehab and nursing home wanted to take part in their own walk since they do not get to make it out to other events.

The residents who participated in the walk said that it was hard but enjoyed every second of it.
