5K will benefit woman fighting HPV cancer

A charity 5K event for Kellie Hicks-Aguilera, a 46-year-old woman battling HPV cancer for the second time, will be held at 9 a.m. Saturday at Gulf High School. The event is being organized by her daughter, Ashley Aguilera, to raise awareness of HPV cancer around the community and to collect money for her mother's treatment. "People can walk or run to support the cause," Ashley Aguilera said. "I'm organizing this event to raise enough funds for my mother's treatments during this hard time, and we'll hopefully also make people more aware of this disease." The entry fee is $25. Participants can preregister at www.cureforkellie.com or walk up the day of the race for $30. For information, call (386) 872-0669 or email ashley [email protected]

Writer to address Historical Society

Gail Diederich, a staff writer and Hometown Pasco coordinator for the Tampa Bay Times, will speak to the West Pasco Historical Society at 1 p.m. Nov. 10. Diederich will discuss the items in a person's life that "may hold little value, yet they represent a time, a culture, a society or economic era long past but historically significant." In her case, those items include a pair of knitting needles fashioned in 1899 by her grandfather from steel umbrella ribs as well as a pair of mittens her grandmother made with those needles. People are welcome to bring their own such items for discussion. The society meets at the Rao Musunuru M.D. Museum at 6431 Circle Blvd., between Orange Lake and Sims Park. For information contact Dan Callaghan, (727) 372-1742.
