Every year, October is recognized as Breast Cancer Awareness Month and you will see pink ribbons everywhere. Another thing that happens is communities host Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walks. The will be such an event in Worcester this year.
The Making Strides walk in Worcester will take place Sunday, October 15th. Registration will begin at 9 a.m. and the walk will start at 10:30 a.m. at Institute Park.
The goal of this walk is to raise $150,000. This money will be used towards vital breast cancer research and other breast cancer support programs. As of this writing, this walk had raised nearly $40,000, but there is a long way to go to reach their goal.
If you are interested in participating in this walk, then you should find friends, family, or coworkers who would like to join you to create your team. Or, if someone is unable to participate in the walk, but still wants to support the program, they can make a donation towards your team’s goal.
By participating in the walk, you will be surrounded by women, men, and children who know someone who has been affected by breast cancer. It will be a comforting environment for these individuals, and will also raise their spirits a bit.
Here at Diamond Auto Group, we encourage all who are able to participate in this fundraising walk.
