Walk With Team Weston and Making Strides
Tuesday, October 11, 2011
Grab your sneakers, family members and friends and join the Weston Women’s League on Sunday, October 30th at the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk in Westport’s Sherwood Island State Park. Debby Katz, Ali Melito and Karyn Harwood are Team Captains for Team Weston and invite you to support the cause in the fight to end breast cancer. Breast cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in women and over 200,000 women are diagnosed yearly. Since 1993, nearly 7 million walkers have raised more than $400 million to help fight breast cancer through participating in the noncompetitive, 3- to 5-mile events. In 2010 alone, nearly 800,000 walkers across the country collected more than $60 million to save lives from breast cancer through Making Strides to help the American Cancer Society create a world with less breast cancer and more birthdays.
Breast Cancer has directly affected many of our close family members and friends. We all worry about our mothers, wives, sisters, daughters and friends who may one day face this disease. Make a difference by walking with the Weston Women's League on October 30th, or by making a tax-deductible donation. Contributions of any size help the group reach our $10,000 fundraising goal.
