Making Strides Against Breast Cancer of Harrison County will host a kick-off event Monday at the Harrison County Community Foundation building, located at 1523 Foundation Way in Corydon.
Registration will begin at 6:30 p.m. followed by the event from 7 to 8. Light refreshments will be served.
The community is invited to attend the kick-off to learn more about Making Strides and the Oct. 26 walk that will take place on the Corydon town square.
The journey to end breast cancer starts with a single step, organizers of the Making Strides walk said, and a short walk can help bring a lifetime of change for people facing breast cancer and their loved ones.
Everyone is invited to attend the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer kickoff event to learn more and
•Be inspired by breast cancer survivors.
•Learn how nearly 300 communities nationwide are coming together to fund the fight.
•Hear about the latest innovations in breast cancer research.
•See how funds raised at Making Strides events provide help and support for breast cancer patients and their families.
•Find out how easy it is to start a team and fundraise for a world without breast cancer.
Making Strides Against Breast Cancer of Harrison County is a noncompetitive walk supporting the American Cancer Society's mission to help people stay well by preventing cancer or detecting it early; help people get well by being there for them during and after a cancer diagnosis; by finding cures through investment in groundbreaking discovery; and by fighting back by rallying lawmakers to pass laws to defeat cancer and by rallying communities worldwide to join the fight.
