“There is so much we can do for our neighbors, families, and companies through Making Strides Against Breast Cancer. Anyone can get involved and help our community fight back against breast cancer,” said Debra Vicker, team captain of team Besties For Breasties. The 5K non-competitive walk will be held on Sunday, August 12 at The Promenade Bolingbrook. Teams of walkers will complete a 5K course and take part in activities before/after the walk.
“The American Cancer Society uses the funds raised through Making Strides to fund research leading to the discovery of lifesaving treatments, to advocate for all women to have access to mammograms and treatments – regardless of income – and to provide free programs and services that improve the quality of life for cancer patients and their families,” said Karen Horn, Making Strides Event Manager.
