From event organizers: The American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walks raise awareness and funds to save lives from breast cancer. Each event is a noncompetitive 3 to 5 mile walk that brings people together to make a difference for everyone who has been touched by breast cancer. The events raise money to fund innovative research, provide free information and support, and to help people reduce their breast cancer risk or find it early when it’s most treatable.

From the opening ceremony to the post-walk entertainment, a Making Strides event is a celebration of survivors and opportunity to remember loved-ones lost. It’s a day that shouldn’t be missed and won’t be forgotten.

NOTE: There is no fee to sign up or join. This is a fundraising walk to fund the life saving mission of the American Cancer Society. Please consider making a tax deductible donation.

Registration will be on site, but pre-registration is highly encouraged.

My two cents: My mom died of breast cancer in 1981. She was 41 years old. Considering about 12 percent of women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime, I don’t want anyone else to have to go through what my mom did. (A man’s lifetime risk of breast cancer is about 1 in 1,000.)
