GET YOUR PINK ON CHALLENGE!

For this week's "Get Your Pink On" Challenge we are asking our teams to add breast cancer survivors to their team roster!

 Making Strides is all about honoring and celebrating our survivors out there, and we all know someone who has been affected by breast cancer. So invite a survivor to sign up on your team this week!

The TEAMS who sign up at least one breast cancer survivor this week will receive an Making Strides selfie stick you can bring to the walk on October 22!

 Breast Cancer Survivors MUST sign up at www.makingstrideswalk.org/southeasttx, And indicate they are a survivor on the website.

Winners will be announced Monday, October 3 during the morning show on Cool 92.5.

RECRUIT A SURVIVOR ON YOUR TEAM THIS WEEK! GOOD LUCK!

Making Strides Against Breast Cancer is a celebration of survivorship - an occasion to express hope and our shared determination to make this breast cancer's last century.

We believe that everyone with breast cancer should have support.

That's why the American Cancer Society is so determined to be here for the survivors, the patients, the caregivers, and the millions saved through early detection.

Help raise funds for groundbreaking breast cancer research, life-saving education, and critical patient services by walking in the American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer of Making Strides of Southeast Texas.

Get ready to join more than one million volunteers nationwide. When you sign up, fundraise, and participate in one of our noncompetitive, three- to five-mile walks, you will be there to support every person affected by breast cancer.

We walk to make sure that anyone touched by this disease has a hand to hold. So give us yours by taking the first steps in supporting this year's Making Strides Against Breast Cancer event.

You can start a team, or keep your team going. And keep raising awareness and donations.

Begin today! The sooner we start, the farther we'll go.

Join us now.
