2016 Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk in San Diego
October marks the kickoff of the annual campaign for the fight against breast cancer. October’s Breast Cancer Awareness month reminds and encourages women to check themselves regularly, see their doctors and remain aware of breast cancer.
Whether you, or a loved one has suffered through this terrible disease, October allows everyone to unite, bring awareness and save lives from this life threatening disease. While the American Cancer Society encourages everyone to raise awareness all year round, October’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month is just one way of praising the strength of the women affected.
During this year, the world gains a little bit more pink as buildings light up with the breast cancer ribbon and businesses campaign to raise money for the cause. Cities all over the world participate in Breast Cancer Awareness walks and due to the raised awareness and races, there has been a steady decline of the disease in the United States.
San Diego is just one of the cities that participates in bringing awareness. You can join in on supporting the cause by participating in the San Diego Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk. Taking place on October 16th in Balboa Park, thousands will join hands and walk to raise awareness.
The event, which starts at 7:30 a.m. is free but all donations will be given the Breast Cancer Awareness cause. The goal is ultimately to ensure that anyone suffering through this disease knows that they have support.
“We walk to make sure that anyone touched by this disease has a hand to hold. So give us yours by taking the first steps in supporting this year’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer event.” – American Cancer Society
Raising awareness will not only make a positive impact in your life by experiencing true love and unity, your participation could help save another woman’s life. Sign up for Making Strides Against Breast Cancer and assist in the fight against breast cancer.
The event will start at the Corner of 6th Ave and Laurel St, in San Diego.
