Daytonians we are in full fall swing with the cool crisp air and the brilliant colors of mother nature! This weekend is the perfect time to take advantage of fall’s beauty by doing something active outdoors. There is a very special event happening this Saturday and it is going on downtown. You bet it involves being active and being outside!
On Saturday, October 17 The Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk kicks off at 8:00 a.m. The walk takes place at Fifth Third Field. You can help finish the fight against breast cancer by walking with American Cancer Society Making Strides of Dayton. Join more than one million people each year who are helping to end breast cancer. 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 participating in this noncompetitive 5K walk you will help support everyone in every community touched by breast cancer, and this is very powerful! You will help those who are currently dealing with a breast cancer diagnosis, those who may face a diagnosis in the future, those who may avoid a diagnosis altogether thanks to education and prevention, and of course, the incredible survivors of breast cancer.
Every Making Strides event is an incredible and inspiring opportunity to unite as a community to honor and celebrate breast cancer survivors as well as raise awareness about the disease. In addition to this, these walks help generate funds through donations to the American Cancer Society. These donations are then used to help save lives from breast cancer by funding groundbreaking breast cancer research, providing free comprehensive information and support, and helping people take steps to reduce their risk of the disease or find it early when it’s most treatable. This disease is one that surely hits home and we all can help contribute to ending it by taking some time to exercise together and help build community support!
Let’s unite together this Saturday morning and make strides for one exceptional cause! The power of each other is unlike any other, let us come together and generate positive energy to do our part in ending breast cancer. Time to get out and get moving Dayton!
