Help American Cancer Society save lives by taking part in Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk

On October 26 you can help save lives from breast cancer by taking part in the 20th annual Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk in Albuquerque.

This family-friendly, non-competitive event helps enable the American Cancer Society to save lives from this disease by investing in groundbreaking research, provide free information, and helping others reduce their breast cancer risk. This fundraiser allows the community to come together to save lives.

The Big Pink Chair will also be at the event, allowing attendees to take pictures and share to social media, bringing more awareness to the cause. Flying Star Cafe has been involved with Making Strides since the beginning and is sponsoring this year’s event.

In New Mexico, more than 1,440 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer this year and an estimated 270 will die from the disease. During the event, breast cancer survivors will be honored and there will be a place for people to look back on pictures from the last two decades of this event.

The Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk takes place on Saturday, October 26, 2019, at 8:30 a.m. at the Isleta Amphitheater. The walk is free to attend though donations are encouraged. You can register online all this week or Saturday, at the walk.
