The annual Making Strides Against Breast Cancer event took place on October 14, 2017, as community members of all ages came bundled up in pink. A chilly temperature made the three-mile walk a bit long, but participants displayed smiles the entire route. Families full of young, old, survivors, and friends gathered to spread awareness and walk for a great cause.
Several teams coordinated t-shirts and raised thousands of dollars to support Breast Cancer. Dance and cheer teams of SCSU cheered on participants throughout the walk around St. Cloud State University campus. Water stations were available at both the one mile and two-mile marker with volunteers also clothed in pink.
A speaker informed guests that about 1 in 8 women will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of her lifetime, therefore donations can be used to further research, and provide help and comfort to those battling at the moment.
