AUGUSTA, GA (WFXG) - The 18th Annual Miracle Mile Walk will be held in the Augusta Common on Saturday, Oct. 20. Pre-walk festivities start at 7:30 a.m. and the three mile walk starts at 9 a.m.

The event is sponsored by the University Health Care System and raises money for their breast health services, as well as the Mobile Mammography Unit. The mobile unit never turns away a woman who needs a mammogram.

The goal for this year’s event is to raise $247,134. So far, they are 82% of the way to their goal.

Signing up to walk in the event is free, but people are encouraged to fundraise as part of participating. To find out more on the event, register to walk, or register a team, click here.
