SPCS President, Miguel Perez, also took the time to address the crowd giving a short briefing on the activities of the organization. “We would like to thank the community for an even greater turnout at this year’s walk. We have seen many of our local businesses group together to show their support. It is our sincerest hope that this display of human concern may encourage others to learn more about cancer and begin to take preventative measures. The San Pedro Cancer Society is really pleased with the community’s response and that alone will fuel us to serve them in 2015,” said Perez.
