On Saturday, Sept. 29 Anchorage will come together for the American Cancer Society’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer 5K Run & Walk. Patients, survivors, caregivers and people who care about making progress in breast cancer research and treatment will spend the day celebrating and encouraging each other. You can register online for the walk/run or sign up at the check-in table on the day of the event.
The best part of the event is the reminder that no one walks alone. Stop whenever you want or need, the race concludes when the last walker crosses the finish line. If you don’t feel up for walking, you can always hang out in the survivor area, complete with information about programs that might work for you.
If you can’t make it to Delaney Park Strip on Saturday but you don’t want to miss out on supporting the cause, you can make a donation and follow the event on social media.
Learn more about the event and join the walk or lead a team.
