    Nobody fighting breast cancer should have to walk alone, so please join us at 9:00 a.m. on Saturday, October 28, for the American Cancer Society’s 7th Annual Making Strides Against Breast Cancer of North Texas 5K walk. You’ll be helping save lives through groundbreaking research and early detection. Make a real difference for countless people and attack breast cancer from every angle.

    The American Cancer Society created Making Strides Against Breast Cancer community walks in 1993 to build awareness and generate funds to fight the disease across the nation. Since its inception, 10 million walkers have collected more than $600 million, and last year, nearly 5,000 North Texas walkers raised more than $300,000.

    Breast cancer remains the most common cancer among women in the United States other than skin cancer, and it is the second leading cause of cancer death. The American Cancer Society projects that this year in Texas, 17,060 new cases will be diagnosed and 2,830 will die from the disease.

    This year’s walk along the Trinity River will offer participants a magnificent view of Dallas’ iconic skyline. It will be a wonderful morning to honor breast cancer survivors while also fighting this disease that affects too many.
