Ironwood State Prison’s (ISP) third annual Cancer Walk around the outer perimeter of the institution drew 150 volunteer walkers. As in previous years, all ISP staff have been invited to participate in the walk.
Before the walk, Warden Neil McDowell presented representatives from Blythe Cancer Resource Center a check for $3,147 that was raised through the #PinkPatchProject.
The #PinkPatchProject was started in CDCR in 2017 by the request and efforts of ISP Sgt. Amanda Johnson.
Since then, thousands of dollars have been raised and donated by CDCR institutions and parole offices and their staff.
