Atlanta Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Attracts 15,000, Raises over $1 Million
More than 15,000 people, including thousands of breast cancer survivors and their families, friends and colleagues, packed Atlanta’s Centennial Olympic Park on Saturday, October 26 to participate in the American Cancer Society’s 15th Annual Making Strides Against Breast Cancer. When the walk around Atlanta was finished, walkers had raised $1 million and counting for the fight against breast cancer.
“We all want to make breast cancer a thing of the past, and the American Cancer Society thanks all the many people who made this year’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer in Atlanta a big success,” says CJ Jimerson, Society’s Manager for Making Strides in Atlanta. “All of you truly are making a difference and helping to finish the fight against this terrible disease.”
Donations to Making Strides can be made through December 31. Visit stridesatlanta.org for information or to make a donation online.
