Every October MoreVisibility supports the fight against Breast Cancer by participating and hosting in variety of events. This year’s team events included participating in a breast cancer walk, a Think Pink ice cream social and an office raffle with 100% of the proceeds going toward cancer research.
On Saturday, October 21 over 20,000 individuals, including the MoreVisibility team, gathered at Boca Raton’s Mizner Park for the American Cancer Society’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk. The event is a noncompetitive walk centered around raising awareness and funds to save lives from breast cancer.
Overall, Making Strides of South Palm Beach, who covers Boca Raton, Delray Beach, and Boynton Beach, ended up raising over $240,000 this year for cancer research. All funds donated to a Making Strides Against Breast Cancer event help the American Cancer Society make a difference in so many ways, such as funding innovative breast cancer research. Apart from skin cancer, breast cancer is the most common cancer type in women. In fact, this year about 252,710 new cases of invasive breast cancer will be diagnosed.
Whether we’ve faced it ourselves, or someone we love has, almost everyone has been affected by breast cancer in some way. But at the same time, we can all do something about it. Even though the event is over, you can always make difference in so many ways, from donating to the American Cancer Society to simply providing a hand to hold. MoreVisibility is proud to help support this worthy cause in our local community.
