American Cancer Society to host Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk
ROCKFORD (WREX) -
The American Cancer Society is hosting a Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk this October. Today, they held a breakfast to share race information with survivors, caregivers and volunteers.
The race has nearly tripled its signed-up teams from this day last year, and organizers say it's a fight they can't take on alone.
"Everybody knows somebody that's involved with cancer regardless if you're not directly related, so it's really important to get involved and help us finish the fight," Making Strides community Manager Abby Weber says.
There is no registration fee for the race. You can sign up online or on the day of the race, which will be Oct. 17 at Rock Valley College.
