Strides Against Breast Cancer

African American females experience higher death rates from breast cancer than any other racial or ethnic group. It is also the leading cause of cancer death among Hispanic women.

This October, the American Cancer Society will be holding its 14th annual Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk in order to raise funds to lower these statistics. The six-mile walk to save lives starts and ends at Boston’s DCR Hatch Memorial Shell. Participants are welcome to walk individually or as a team of friends, family or co-workers. The walk will be held on Sunday, October 15, 2006. Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts is a major sponsor of Making Strides, and all are welcome to join the company in the cause to raise money to fight breast cancer in Massachusetts.
