PITTSBURGH — The American Cancer Society has reimagined its annual Making Strides Against Breast Cancer event for 2020.
Instead of the normal walk, the nonprofit will host a drive-through event which will allow people to safely participate by staying in their vehicles. The event will be held Saturday, Oct. 17 from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m. at Settlers Cabin Park.
“Cancer hasn’t stopped, and neither has the work of the American Cancer Society. We continue to engage with people where they live their lives, serving patients as we attack cancer from every angle through research, education, advocacy, and patient services,” noted Dan Tobin, American Cancer Society Director of Communications.
According to a release by the American Cancer Society, roughly 1,500 cancer survivors, current patients, their caregivers, families, and friends are expected to attend the event which raises money to fund innovative breast cancer research; provide education and guidance to help people reduce their risk; and offer comprehensive patient support to those who need it most.
