Plenty of pink for a great cause
The annual Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk took place on Saturday in Daytona Beach. Hundreds participated in the 2.5-mile walk, which culminated at Riverfront Park. The event, which honors breast cancer survivors and brings awareness, included speakers, music, games and entertainment.
The American Cancer Society sponsors the event, which is part of a larger nationwide campaign. October was National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
The American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walks raise awareness and funds to save lives from breast cancer.
The events raise money to fund innovative research, provide free information and support, and to help people reduce their breast cancer risk or find it early when it’s most treatable.
