Making Strides Against Breast Cancer is a noncompetitive walk that takes place in 120 communities across the country. From Arizona to Maine and Washington to Florida, Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walkers unite to honor breast cancer survivors and to educate women about early detection and prevention. And of course, by raising money to support the American Cancer Society's fight against breast cancer, we help fund groundbreaking research, public awareness campaigns, efforts to ensure all women have access to mammograms, and free programs and services that improve the quality of life for patients and their families.
Dave and I will be walking five miles on October 20th, up in San Francisco's Golden Gate Park. We're hoping to raise $400.
My grandmother, Mildred, had breast cancer. My childhood best friend's mom, Sue, had breast cancer. I'm walking for them. Because not a day goes by where I don't think of them. There've been advancements made in cancer research since then, but one major thing is still lacking: a cure.
I do hope you'll consider sponsoring us. Any amount is muchly appreciated and WILL make a difference. Our webpage for donations is: http://main.acsevents.org/goto/kandd.
Thank you so very much! :)
