Pasco's 'Making Strides' walk set for Oct. 19

WESLEY CHAPEL — The Pasco County Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk will be on Oct. 19 at The Shops at Wiregrass, 28211 Paseo Dr., Wesley Chapel, FL 33543. Registration will open at 8:00 a.m. and the walk will begin at 9:00 a.m.

"Making Strides Against Breast Cancer unites us to walk together as the most powerful force to end breast cancer," said Jannah McDonald, American Cancer Society community representative. "When you join Making Strides, you are supporting the world's leader in the fight to end breast cancer. The money you raise helps the American Cancer Society do the most for people with breast cancer today to end the disease tomorrow."

Making Strides Against Breast Cancer is the largest network of breast cancer awareness events in the nation. This event also supports the American Cancer Society's mission to fight breast cancer on all fronts and save lives by helping people stay well by reducing breast cancer risk or finding it early; helping people get well by providing information and support during and after a cancer diagnosis; by finding cures through investment in breast cancer research and by fighting back by encouraging lawmakers to pass laws to defeat cancer and by rallying communities worldwide to join the fight.

The walks, in nearly 300 communities across the country, help to raise $60 million for the American Cancer Society each year to save lives from breast cancer.
