Some 40,000 people gathered along the Charles River Esplanade to raise awareness and $3 million to fight breast cancer. Making Strides Against Breast Cancer supports the American Cancer Society’s unique mission to save lives and create a world with less cancer and more birthdays by helping people stay well by preventing cancer or finding it early; helping people get well by being there for them during and after a cancer diagnosis; by finding cures through investment in groundbreaking research and by fighting back by encouraging lawmakers to pass laws to defeat cancer and by rallying communities worldwide to join the fight. Boston’s Making Strides is the nation’s oldest and largest one-day walk, raising more than $42 million since its inception in 1993. It’s not too late to make a donation. Donations can also be made by calling 1-800-227-2345 or visiting http://www.cancer.org/stridesonline.
