WALK UNITED IN SOUTH PALM BEACH TO HELP END BREAST CANCER

More than 20,000 South Palm Beach residents rallied together on October 25,2014 at Mizner Park Amphitheater for the American Cancer Society’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer community walk, raising over $500,000

“Saturday’s event was an inspirational example of passion in action,” said Lainie Jones. “I’m so proud of how our community responded and how every participant, volunteer and sponsor took positive steps to help finish the fight against breast cancer.”

The 2014 walk was made possible in part by the generous support of all our incredible sponsors.

While significant progress in the fight against the disease has been made, more needs to be done. Breast cancer remains the most common cancer among women in the U.S. other than skin cancer, and is the second leading cause of cancer death after lung cancer. The chance of a woman developing invasive breast cancer at some time in her life is about 1 in 8. In 2014, approximately 232,670 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer and more than 40,000 will die from the disease in the U.S.

Since 1993, Making Strides Against Breast Cancer has been the American Cancer Society’s rallying cry to build awareness and generate funds to fight breast cancer. In that time, 10 million walkers in nearly 300 communities across the nation have collected over $594 million.
