This week we want to tell you about a wonderful event in our community. Its called Making Strides Against Breast Cancer. This organization is a branch of the American Cancer Society that works to raise money in the fight against breast cancer. Every year the group works around the country to raise money for the fight. The best part about this organization is that more than half of the money raised in our community stays here to help your sisters, mothers, grandmothers, and friends.
Making Strides organizes a 3-mile walk around the Campbell/River area. We all meet there before the walk for motivation, warm-ups, and mingling with other members/survivors of our community. The organization also has several contests and all are welcome to attend. Last years walk was a sea of green as the walkers set out. The people were great and the atmosphere was fun. It was a joy for all of us to participate in bettering our community.
We would like to ask anyone who is interested to join us. The walk is 3 miles, but don't let it scare you. There is so much going on, and there are so many wonderful people around that it certainly doesn't feel like a 3 mile walk. Last year, the gathering included a contest for men. The men were encouraged to dress in as much pink as possible to win. We walked next to a man who was kind enough to let us take his picture. He was clad in pink hair, a pink hat, pink sunglasses, a pink outfit, and pink striped knee socks. He told us that if he won the contest, he had to wear 9 inch pink heels for this year's walk. We sure hope he won!
