Walk for Megan
Norfolk residents rallied around one of their own on October 9. The “Walk for Megan” was held in support of Megan Joughin, who is battling Stage 4 breast cancer.
Over 300 people participated in the 1.5 mile walk through town, raising over $17,000 for Joughin and her family with the goal of alleviating some of the medical expenses associated with treatment.
Megan and her husband Michael have lived in Norfolk since 2006 and have three children: Will, Olivia, and Jake. Megan was diagnosed in March of 2020 at the age of 41.
Organized by the Norfolk Lions and Kelly Panepinto, a friend and neighbor of Joughin, the event was held during Breast Cancer Awareness month. In the U.S., 1 out of 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime, and in 1 of 3 of those women the cancer will spread.
Donations for the Joughin family are still being accepted. Visit www.norfolkmalions.org/megan to donate.
