The American Cancer Society’s initiative, called Making Strides Against Breast Cancer®, is a 5K run/walk in Palm Beach County to celebrate survivors and raise money for breast cancer patient services such as lodging, transportation, a survivor’s network, and much more. Breast cancer is one of the most commonly diagnosed forms of cancer among women in the US and the MoreVisibility team had a tremendous opportunity to raise awareness and participate in this event. We were called to remind ourselves, loved ones, and business partners that our community can gather together and fund raise to support these efforts.
Our team was super excited to organize 25+ members from our team to fund raise, market, and plan for the 5K. The #ThinkPink Friday held the day prior to the event was extra special because we were able to celebrate with our survivors and show more support with pink pastries, pink lemonade, and other goodies as well as some trivia throughout the day with prizes to feed the excitement.
Team members individually raised close to $2000 and MoreVisibility is making a matching donation. In the end, some walked and others ran during the 5K, but it was a beautiful day to celebrate our survivors. What an amazing experience!
