Chicago Family Fit “Makes Strides Against Breast Cancer”

Monday, August 30th, 2010

I recently attended an informational breakfast meeting with the American Cancer Society to learn more about their upcoming events for October and Breast Cancer Awareness.  This topic really hits home as I personally have lost friends/family as well as have survivors of this disease that are close to me and my family.  This year their slogan is “Pink Differently” and they are offering many opportunities to “Make Strides Against Breast Cancer” in order to raise money and funding for various programs such as:

  • Help fund Breast Cancer Research and Prevention.
  • Provide free resources and support for breast cancer patients and their caregivers.
  • Fund programs to help all women receive access to mammograms and treatments.

We will be participating in a 5k walk/fund raiser on Sunday, October 17th at the AT&T campus in Hoffman Estates and are working together to raise donations and invite you to walk with us to support such a great cause.

If you would like to support our team by participating with us in this event and/or make a donation to the American Cancer Society on behalf of our team (Chicago Family Fit) then follow the link below and search for team “Chicago Family Fit.”
