American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Kickoff Set For August 17, 2017
The American Cancer Society will host a Making Strides Against Breast Cancer kickoff rally and informational meeting at 7:30 a.m. on August 17 at the Red Rock Casino in Las Vegas, Nev., to share details about its upcoming community walk.
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 12 million supporters have raised more than $750 million nationwide. Last year, over 20,000 walkers in Las Vegas helped to raise more than $700,000. This kickoff will provide community members the opportunity to learn how to get involved in the Las Vegas walk slated for October 29, 2017.
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, we celebrate breast cancer survivors, pay tribute to loved ones lost, and raise funds to move us one step closer to a world free from the pain and suffering caused by breast cancer,” said Josiah LaRow, American Cancer Society community manager. “From research to education, prevention to diagnosis, and treatment to recovery, we provide support to everyone impacted by breast cancer.”
