Members of the South Bend Area (IN) Chapter of The Links, Incorporated participated in this year's walk on Saturday, October 6, 2918 to bring awareness to saving lives from breast cancer. Consuela Wilson and her daughter, along with Raquel Foster participated. The South Bend Area (IN) Chapter Team with Raquel as our captain raised funds to assist in the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer fundraiser.
The American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walks raise awareness and funds to save lives from breast cancer. Each event is a noncompetitive 3 to 5 mile walk that brings people together to make a difference for everyone who has been touched by 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.
From the opening ceremony to the post-walk entertainment, a Making Strides event is a celebration of survivors and opportunity to remember loved-ones lost. It's a day that shouldn't be missed and won't be forgotten.
More than $62 Million are currently invested in breast cancer research grants.
More than 36,000 women learned how to manage the appearance-related side effects of treatment.
