Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk

The Women’s Business Center at Florida Tech and the Rotary Club of Indialantic are walking to support breast cancer patients and survivors. Join our team (Courage, Heart and Soul) this year.

October 20, 2012 • 8 a.m. • Space Coast Stadium MSABC Walk

Making Strides events are a celebration of survivorship – an occasion to express hope and our shared goal to end a disease that threatens the lives of so many people we love. Join us as we honor breast cancer survivors, remember those we have lost to this disease, and raise funds and awareness to help end it forever.

Here’s the most important part – when you donate, more people in our community will…

  • Have information and tools they need to stay well from breast cancer or find the disease early, when it’s easiest to treat.
  • Have a place to turn for help 24/7 if they are facing breast cancer.
  • Benefit from the progress being made toward finding breast cancer’s causes and cure.
  • Get access to lifesaving mammograms and treatment.

Last year our team was in the top 10 for our community and raised over $6000 – literally one $10, $25, and $50 donation at a time – so please, no matter how much or how little you can give, click one of the links at the bottom of this email and support breast cancer patients with a donation of any amount. Together, we’ll save lives and create a world with less breast cancer and more birthdays for those people who have the COURAGE, HEART and SOUL to battle this dreadful disease.

Here’s what you can do:

1. Join the team and walk with us and help to raise funds through your network of friends. If you can’t walk, join the team and help us fundraise online through your social contacts.
