Nearly 250,000 people will be diagnosed with breast cancer this year, according to the American Cancer Society. That could be your mother, sister, daughter, your wife, or even you. The ACS holds Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walks so anyone touched by breast cancer won’t have to face their diagnosis alone.
The ACS says the walks help raise awareness and money to fund research, support services and early detection. “We hold Making Strides events to save lives,” they say.
This year, the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk will be held on Sunday, October 21 at 10 a.m. at Point Pleasant Beach. To learn how to join the walk or make a donation, go to the ACS Making Strides at Point Pleasant Beach web page.
