Register now for Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Oct. 2
By Maureen Chodaba
Breast cancer is a terrible disease that has affected so many people in so many horrific ways. Like a thief in the night, it has stolen the lives of so many we love among our family and friends, both men and women.
The American Cancer Society invites you to join us in stealing back from this thief the evening of Oct. 2 at 5 p.m. at Paradise Coast Sports Complex, 3940 City Gate Blvd. S N, Naples, for Making Strides Against Breast Cancer (MSABC).
Chaired by Merry Coffman and Robin Rosario, the 2021 MSABC of Southwest Florida will be an event like no other.
Funds raised through the Making Strides movement have allowed ACS to support breast cancer patients and their loved ones in times when they have needed it the most – even during the global pandemic. Currently, more than $76 million has been invested in breast cancer research grants. More than 134 million visitors have used our website, www.cancer.org for the latest information and facts about cancer, while ACS has responded to more than 1.4 million information requests through our helpline and chat services.
Event emcees Lindsey Sablan and Lois Thome of WINK News will be there to cheer on our survivors, caregivers, and all participants as we make our strides around this amazing new venue. Enjoy refreshments at various food trucks and stations while you shop the trunk sale by Kendra Scott, Naples’ custom jewelry designer dedicated to “Family, Fashion and Philanthropy/.”
Sign up to participate as a team or individual by Sept. 10 and receive a complimentary voucher for a sightseeing cruise aboard M/V Double Sunshine with Pure Florida at historic Tin City.
Downtown House of Pizza, located at 1520 Hendry St .in Fort Myers, is also donating 10% of proceeds from the weekend of Oct. 1 – Oct. 3. Supporting these businesses supports Making Strides Against Breast Cancer.
