Making Strides against Breast Cancer Slated for October 18

Sep 28, 2014 07:22PM

The 15th Annual Making Strides against Breast Cancer, a noncompetitive walk, takes place at 9 a.m. October 18, with registration beginning at 7:30 a.m., at the Sarasota Polo Club.

     At last year’s event, more than 8,000 walkers raised more than $335,000 in Sarasota and Manatee Counties. A highlight of the 2014 Making Strides against Breast Cancer will be the attempt to set a Guinness World Record by forming the largest pink ribbon of human beings ever created. In order to achieve this record, 6,848 people will need to join together and form the ribbon.

     As noted in the Strides against Breast Cancer website, the fight to end breast cancer starts with a single step. Take that step at the American Cancer Society Making Strides of Sarasota/Manatee walk. Just a few hours of your time at the non-competitive, 5K (3.1 mile) event will help bring a lifetime of change for people, facing breast cancer, and their families.

     Every Making Strides Against Breast Cancer (MSABC) event is an inspiring opportunity to unite as a community to honor breast cancer survivors, raise awareness about what we can do to reduce our breast cancer risk, and raise money to help the American Cancer Society fight the disease with medical research, information and services, and access to mammograms for women, who need them. Sign up today, and let’s finish this fight against breast cancer.

 

Location: Sarasota Polo Club, 821 Polo Club Ln, Lakewood Ranch. For more information, contact Alyson Kerwin at [email protected].
