Description

All proceeds benefit the American Cancer Society. 

As the glue that holds a family together, the impact of a woman’s breast cancer diagnosis reaches far beyond the individual. Whether it’s a wife, mother, sister, aunt, grandmother, daughter or dear friend, most of us have come face-to-face with breast cancer.

On October 5th, help us fight back against this disease by raising funds for the American Cancer Society's Breast Cancer Awareness 5K walk and fun run. The American Cancer Society is the nation's largest not-for-profit organization raising funds for cancer research. Our events provide free information and support for people facing all types of cancer today, educate people about how to reduce their risk for cancer or detect it early when it’s the easiest to treat, and fund cancer research that will help protect future generations.
