Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Oct. 8
By Maureen Chodaba
We will jump start our plans to paint Southwest Florida pink in the spirit of saving lives!
The American Cancer Society invites you to make a team, and join us for the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer SWFL (MSABC SWFL) Walk Event, Saturday, Oct. 8 at 10 a.m. at the North Collier Regional Park. Make your strides along the beautiful walking trails of North Collier Regional Park, 15000 Livingston Road, Naples, as we envision a world without breast cancer.
In 2021, the Southwest Florida event raised $151,931 in the quest for a cure. Chaired once again by Robin Rosario and Merry Coffman of Pure Florida, this year’s event has set a goal to go even further. We currently have over 38 teams registered for Making Strides Against Breast Cancer of Southwest Florida.
MSABC is the largest network of breast cancer events in the USA. We make strides, but it’s not just about the walk. It’s a movement. MSABC raises money to fund breast cancer research and provide patient support services such as free rides to cancer treatments, free lodging close to treatment centers, and a 24/7 cancer helpline for patients in need.
When you support the MSABC movement, you help to fund innovative breast cancer research and programs for our loved ones today and for the next generation. You help to focus our vision of a world where one day our children will no longer live with the threat of breast cancer.
All cancer survivors who register will receive a free survivor T-shirt. Sign up at Making Strides of Southwest Florida | (acsevents.org) , recruit your family and friends, and let’s make strides to fight back against this deadly disease!
