Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk, Saturday, October 31, 9:00 a.m., Thalia Maria Hall

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.

You can help finish the fight against breast cancer by raising funds for and walking with American Cancer Society Making Strides of Hinds – Jackson.

Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walks are the largest network of breast cancer awareness events in the nation, uniting nearly 300 communities with a shared determination to finish the fight. By signing up, fundraising, and participating in one of our noncompetitive, three- to five-mile walks, you will be there for everyone in every community touched by breast cancer. You will help those who are currently dealing with a breast cancer diagnosis, those who may face a diagnosis in the future, and those who may avoid a diagnosis altogether thanks to education and prevention.

They are still looking for participants and volunteers. Please click on link below for more information.
