On Saturday, October 25 thousands of people came out to participate in the Making Strides against Breast Cancer walk. Men women, and children participated walking for loved ones that survived or was lost to cancer. This moving event was greeted with the warmth of all races, ethnic backgrounds, colors and creeds working together on one accord to do one thing. Fight against cancer.
The party started at 7:00 AM at Cordova Mall off of Airport Blvd. with music, dancing, hugs and hand shakes. Everyone was pumped and ready to put their best foot forward for such a moving event. People dressed up in costumes and walked the streets in pride as they supported this important cause. It was even more surprising to see how many men joined in the walk. Not just for women with breast cancer but for men that have breast cancer as well. Unlike women, men are unable to have a mastectomy they only lose a nipple. Seeing the men come for the cause was extremely heartfelt and supportive.
Every Making Strides Against Breast Cancer (MSABC) event is an incredible and 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. The money is to help the American Cancer Society fight the disease with breast cancer research, information and services, and provide access to mammograms for women who need them.
