Making Strides Against Breast Cancer is the largest network of breast cancer awareness events in the nation, uniting nearly 300 communities to raise awareness and funds to end breast cancer. Dollars raised from the noncompetitive events help the Society invest in groundbreaking breast cancer research AND provide free information and services for women who need them.
Each of the Connecticut events will begin with a complimentary reception survivors and caregivers -- those who have cared for them throughout their diagnosis and treatment. There will be light refreshments and information on the impact of Making Strides Against Breast Cancer.
Making Strides Against Breast Cancer has no registration fee, but encourages contributions through online registration and donations. This event is open to the public and volunteers are also needed to ensure this year’s Making Strides event is a success.
