American Cancer Society presents ‘Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk’ at Champions Square, Oct. 1

Written by  American Cancer Society
The American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk will be held Saturday, October 1 at Champions Square, and will unite the community with a shared determination to help create a world free from the pain and suffering caused by breast cancer. Registration for this noncompetitive, inspirational event begins at 7:00am and the walk is set to start at 8:15am.
 
Dollars raised by Making Strides supporters help the American Cancer Society ensure no one faces breast cancer alone by funding innovative breast cancer research; promoting education and risk reduction; and providing comprehensive patient support to those who need it most.
Since 1993, more than 12 million supporters have raised more than $750 million nationwide. Last year,6,500 walkers in New Orleans helped to raise more than $249,000.
 
According to the American Cancer Society Cancer Facts & Figures 2016, an estimated 246,660 women in the United States will be diagnosed with breast cancer and 40,450 will die from the disease this year.
 
“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 Paula Shamsie, senior director of community engagement for the American Cancer Society. “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.”
