Two separate hikes up Badger Mountain to raise money for breast cancer support and awareness are planned this week.
Both will take off from the Trailhead Community Park at 541 Queensgate Drive, Richland.
Here are the details:
-- Club 24 Express Fitness in Kennewick is holding a "Paint the Mountain Pink" event at 5:30 p.m. Thursday.
Pink glow sticks and necklaces will be sold, and all proceeds from the event will go to the Tri-Cities Cancer Center.
-- Northwest Cancer Clinic in Kennewick is putting on a "Rising Above Cancer" event at 10 a.m. Saturday.
Balloons will be sold for $5, with the cancer clinic matching each balloon donation. The proceeds will go to the nonprofit Focus on Cancer to provide free mammograms. A brief ceremony to honor patients, survivors and families will be held at the top of Badger.
Community First Bank, MIX 105.3 and KONA 610 AM also are helping with the event.
