A world without breast cancer is a world with more birthdays. Signing up for the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk will help us get there faster.
About 3,000 Houstonians will be diagnosed with breast cancer this year. One in two women will turn to the American Cancer Society for support.
Making Strides Against Breast Cancer is a noncompetitive walk that unites communities to honor and celebrate breast cancer survivors, to educate people about how to reduce their breast cancer risk or find it early and raise funds and awareness to end the disease. More than a fundraising event, Making Strides is a grassroots, community-based walk with teams of walkers from hundreds of corporations, hospitals, schools, municipal and community organizations throughout the greater Houston area.
Through the generous contributions of events and corporate partners, the American Cancer Society has raised millions of dollars to fund live-saving breast cancer research, provide up-to-date breast cancer information, ensure all women have access to breast cancer screening and treatments (regardless of income) and provide services that improve the quality of life for breast cancer patients and their families.
The 2013 Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk will be held at Reliant Park beginning at 9 a.m. on May 11.
