Breast Cancer Awareness Month

(HawaiiNewsNow) - October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month! The journey to end breast cancer starts with a single step. Take that step with one of the American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walks. Just a few hours of your time will help bring a lifetime of change for people facing breast cancer and their families.

Every Making Strides event is a powerful and inspiring opportunity to unite as a community to honor breast cancer survivors, raise awareness about what we can do to stay well from breast cancer, and raise money to help the American Cancer Society fight the disease with breast cancer research, information and services, and access to mammograms for women who need them.

Join the American Cancer Society in the fight to end breast cancer forever and sign up today to help raise funds and awareness. Every dollar raised is another dollar closer to ending breast cancer.

Since 1993, 8 million cancer charity walkers across the country have raised more than $460 million through Making Strides events to help fight breast cancer. Last year alone, dedicated supporters like you raised more than $60 million nationwide to help the American Cancer Society save lives and create a world with less breast cancer and more birthdays.

There's a Making Strides walk coming up this Saturday, October 6, 2012. The walk starts at 7am at Richardson Field.
