The six participating Epcon neighborhoods include The Woods at Hayden Run in Hillard, OH, the Village of North Falls in Powell, OH, Cobblestone Village in Gahanna, OH, The Woods at Sugar Run in New Albany, OH, Canterbury Woods in Westerville, OH, and The Villas at Glenealy in Dublin, Ohio.
An open house will be hosted by Epcon Communities on Sunday October 25, 2009 from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. at The Woods at Sugar Run located at 5545 Armstead Avenue, New Albany, Ohio. Cancer survivor Kelly Daum will share her personal fight with the attendees. Not only will representatives from Komen Columbus be in attendance, but Tim Maurer of Mukha Salon & Day Spa will be present in order to discuss ways women can take care of themselves while undergoing chemotherapy and radiation treatments.
“We are proud to join Susan G. Komen in their fight against breast cancer” said Vice President of Sales & Marketing, Nanette Overly. Overly went on to say “it is difficult to find anyone whose life has not in some way by this disease; either by a friend, neighbor, spouse, mother, sister, daughter or coworker. Condos for a Cure provide a way for Epcon Communities to help in this fight.
