The Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk is coming to Wilmington.

The American Cancer Society held a kickoff breakfast Saturday at The Balcony on Dock Street to celebrate the Port City walk. Making Strides is not a race, it is a celebration of survivorship. It’s a free event and registration is not required.

“Last year we had a small walk at Hugh MacCrae Park and we were considered a little sister walk of Raleigh,” organizer Claudia Eastmond said. “Because we did so well with that event the American Cancer Society said Wilmington definitely needs to have a walk of their own.”

WWAY news anchor Ann McAdams emceed the breast cancer walk kickoff. The walk is Saturday, October 17th in Downtown Wilmington. It will start at Grace Methodist Church.

NAGS HEAD, N.C. — If you’ve ever wanted your own windmill – especially one with a 7,300-square-foot building – then Nags Head has the place for you.

The Virginian-Pilot of Norfolk reported that the town of Nags Head and the Dare County Tourism board are looking for someone to buy the closed Windmill Point restaurant. The building needs as much as $300,000 in repairs. That doesn’t include fixing the authentic 80-year-old windmill in the backyard.

The county and town hope someone will renovate the building on Roanoke Sound and lease it for at least five years, with an option to renew. After that, the governmental co-owners hope a convention center could be financed, although they estimate that’s 10 years away.

The town and tourism board recently published a request for proposals. Bidding closes Sept. 30.
