American Cancer Society to Host Breast Cancer Walk This Month
The American Cancer Society’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk (MakingStridesWalk.org/LincolnNE) will be held October 14 at Holmes Lake Park to unite communities, honor those touched by the disease, and raise awareness and funds for a world without breast cancer. Making Strides Against Breast Cancer is the largest network of breast cancer awareness events in the nation, with more than 1 million passionate participants supporting the noncompetitive three to five-mile walks each year. Registration for this event begins at 11:30 a.m. and the walk is set to start at 1 p.m.
“Because of the determination of Making Strides supporters, 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,” said Heather Schommer, event manager. “At the event, communities embrace a bittersweet mix of purpose—celebrating survivorship and paying meaningful tributes to loved ones lost. From research to education, prevention to diagnosis, and treatment to recovery, we provide support to everyone impacted by breast cancer.”
