The Corner Stop Eatery in Cohasset will donate 10 percent of its October sales to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. Rudy Vale, who owns the restaurant with her husband, received a breast cancer diagnosis two years ago after a routine mammogram. Now in remission, she has teamed up with South Shore Hospital, through which she received treatment, to produce a video aimed at spreading awareness of breast cancer and encouraging women to get regular mammograms. The restaurant also donated its sales to support breast cancer research last October.

Peak Physical Therapy and Sports Performance will open its new location at the University Sports Complex in Hanover Oct. 19, with an open house and ribbon-cutting from 5 to 7 p.m. Free functional movement screenings will be available during the open house. The tests measure a person’s strength, flexibility, and stability, with the goal of identifying parts of the body that are prone to injury. The company has additional locations in Norwell, Quincy, and Scituate.

The Neponset River Watershed Association and more than 100 volunteers spent a Saturday late last month cleaning up parts of the Neponset River and nearby land in Milton and Hyde Park. Fourteen tons of debris -- including railroad spikes, car parts, toilets, a motorcycle, and a newspaper vending machine containing newspapers from 1995 -- were removed over the course of four hours, according to the group, which holds the event every year.
