Rocky Hill, CT - The American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walks will be held this October at six locations across Connecticut. This inspiring event raises awareness and funds to support the Society’s mission to help finish the fight against breast cancer.

Breast cancer survivors and community members are invited to join us on:

Sunday, October 5, 2014
Litchfield County, White Memorial Conservation Center

Sunday, October 19, 2014
Hartford, Bushnell Park
New Haven, Lighthouse Point Park
Waterbury, Library Park
Westport, Sherwood Island State Park

Sunday, October 26, 2014
New London County, Rocky Neck State Park

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. To register, become a volunteer or for more information, visit www.makingstrideswalk.org.
