October is our National Service Month and the month where a majority of awareness walks take place. We have decided to support the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer hosted by the American Cancer Society as a National Organization. We are asking all our chapters and members to help Fight for the Cure and support a walk in your area.
The fight to end breast cancer starts with a single step. Take that step with us at the American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk in your respective cities. It will take each and every one of us to rally together and finish the fight against breast cancer. Just a few hours of your time at our non-competitive, 5 K (3.1 mile) events will help bring a lifetime of change for people facing breast cancer and their families.
