American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Kickoff Set For August 16th
Utica, NY (August 2017) – The American Cancer Society will host a Making Strides Against Breast Cancer kickoff rally and informational expo from 5:00 PM – 7:00 PM on August 16th at the Holiday Inn at the Utica Business Park to share details about its upcoming community walk. This event is open to the public.
The kickoff will highlight how individuals, businesses, and organizations can support the American Cancer Society’s work to help save lives from breast cancer and feature inspirational stories from breast cancer survivors.
Making Strides Against Breast Cancer is a noncompetitive, inspirational event that raises awareness and funds to end breast cancer and provide hope to ensure no one faces breast cancer alone. Since 1993, more than 13 million supporters have raised more than $810 million nationwide. Last year, more than 3,500 walkers in the Mohawk Valley helped to raise more than $200,000. This kickoff will provide community members the opportunity to learn how to get involved in the Utica walk slated for Sunday, Oct. 15th at the Masonic Care Community Campus.
Funds raised through Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walks enable the American Cancer Society to invest in groundbreaking research; provide free, comprehensive information and support to those touched by breast cancer; and help people take steps to reduce their breast cancer risk or find it early when it’s most treatable.
“As we join with others in the Making Strides walk, move us one step closer to a-world without breast cancer,” said Robert Elinskas, Event Manager for the Making Strides event in Utica, “From research to education, prevention to diagnosis, and treatment to recovery, we provide support to everyone impacted by breast cancer.”
