Making Strides Against Breast Cancer

By Noel Daniel

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month—and Making Strides of Modesto wants to be sure you’re not only aware, but that you have the support you need.

Making Strides Against Breast Cancer is presented by Alfred Matthews Buick GMC Cadillac and takes place on Oct.15 at 7:30 a.m. The walk will start at 8:30 a.m. at the Gallo Center for the Arts. These walks unite communities behind the American Cancer Society’s efforts to save lives from breast cancer. Come together with survivors, caregivers, and men and women from all walks of life who are passionate about saving lives from breast cancer.

Celebrate your shared efforts. Inspire each other to carry on. And take comfort in the knowledge that, because of your dedication, no one walks alone. Making Strides Against Breast Cancer events raise money for an important cause—but that doesn’t mean they aren’t meant to be fun. There will be entertainment and camaraderie for the whole family.

We all walk together, but the event is not a race. Stop whenever you want or need to. You absolutely do not need to complete the entire walk if you are unable. Upon finishing the walk, feel free to partake in entertainment and please make sure you hydrate. The walk concludes when the final walker crosses the finish line.

Be sure that your team is ready to go at least 15 minutes before your designated start time. Survivors, check in when you arrive at the walk. Please fill out a paper registration form or sign up online.

There will be a special survivor area, which is specifically for survivors and the caregivers attending with them. Both survivors and caregivers are included to make sure that everyone is as comfortable as possible. They even provide important information about American Cancer Society programs and services geared specifically for those who need them.

Register and raise $25 or more online by Sept. 9 to get your own super cool Hope Hero Cape. For more information, visit
