Dr. Scott, who has a special in­ter­est in breast surgery, will be in­tro­duced and will pro­vide in­for­ma­tion on Breast Can­cer Aware­ness Month, which takes place in Oc­to­ber. From there, walk­ers will pass through the paved por­tion of the trail to Cony­ers Street and a shorter prim­i­tive sec­tion to­wards the Cov­ing­ton By­pass.

Dur­ing the twom­ile walk, Dr. Scott will be avail­able to an­swer any health-re­lated ques­tions and to chat along the way. It’s free and open to ev­ery­body – pets in­cluded, and Pied­mont New­ton en­cour­ages walk­ers to wear pink in sup­port of breast can­cer aware­ness.
