For most of the year Oak Trace Care & Rehab and Terrace Oaks Care & Rehab, which share a campus in Bessemer, are friendly rivals. But each October for the past five years Oak Trace and Terrace Oaks have put their rivalry aside for a good cause. They come together to raise money and awareness about breast cancer with the Walk and Roll for a Cure.
Walk and Roll was created to honor Sheree Walker, a former Oak Trace activity director who died from breast cancer. Over the past five years it has grown into more than a fundraiser. It’s an opportunity for residents, staff, and the community to come together and build relationships.
