HARRISBURG -- Thousands of Harrisburg residents joined together at the American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer 5K walk on Saturday, Oct. 19, to help the society do the most for people with breast cancer today to end the disease tomorrow.

This noncompetitive event united the entire community to honor breast cancer survivors, educate people about how to reduce their breast cancer risk or find the disease early and raise funds to end breast cancer.

The event and the dollars raised from it help the Society turn awareness into action and provide free resources and support to the one in two women newly diagnosed with breast cancer who turn to the society for help and support.

Dollars raised also fund groundbreaking research to find, prevent, treat and cure breast cancer, as well as help the Society ensure access to mammograms for women who need them.

“Making Strides Against Breast Cancer unites us all to walk together as the most powerful force to end breast cancer,” said Catherine Stetler, Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk Committee Co-Chair. “Making Strides walkers and supporters can be proud that their efforts are helping more than 2.9 million breast cancer survivors living in the U.S. celebrate another birthday this year.” Making Strides Against Breast Cancer raises money for support, research
