Making Strides Against Breast Cancer 2017

106.5 The Arch is proud to partner with the American Cancer Society for the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk on Saturday, October 28th at Forest Park in the Lower Muny Parking Lot!  Registration begins at 7:30am and the race begin at 9am! The American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk is a powerful event to raise awareness and funds to end breast cancer. At Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walks, communities embrace a bittersweet mix of purpose – celebrating survivor-ship, paying meaningful tributes to loved ones lost, and having collective determination to raise funds to create a world free from the pain and suffering caused by breast cancer. Making Strides Against Breast Cancer is a 5K, noncompetitive walk that unites the St. Louis community. Participants walk in teams or individually, and invite their friends and families to join their team and donate to their effort. Volunteers help with check-in, water stations, information, and much more. Because of the determination of Making Strides supporters like you, the American Cancer Society is there for people in every community affected by breast cancer, whether they’re currently dealing with a diagnosis, may face one in the future, or will avoid it altogether because of education and risk reduction. Funds raised through this event support the American Cancer Society’s efforts to save lives by helping people stay well by preventing cancer or finding it early; helping people get well by being there for them during and after a cancer diagnosis; by finding cures through investment in groundbreaking research; and by fighting back by encouraging lawmakers to pass laws to defeat cancer and by rallying communities worldwide to join the fight. Join us to celebrate breast cancer survivors, pay tribute to loved ones lost, and raise funds to help us free the world from the pain and suffering of breast cancer.  Visit makingstrideswalk.org today to sign up; start or join a team, or walk and raise funds as an individual.
