About this Article

It may be the last, and Mt. Prospect is gearing up to make this year's Susan G. Komen 3-Day Walk the best. For years, Mt. Prospect has been a highlight of the Walk, where residents turn out en masse to cheer on the walkers, and police direct traffic in pink shirts. "I was sad to hear about the event being canceled," said Tarina Wimmer, a Mount Prospect resident and a past participant.
