Why We Walk for A Cure
Chances are you know that October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month (aka the annual global campaign that promotes cancer education and raises money for research). But what you may not know is that Women’s Imaging Center has participated in national charity-related walks for nearly a decade. It’s not only a great way to promote education and contribute to the cause, but it’s a really fun way to connect with women, men, and children in our community.
Over the years, our team and their families have participated in Susan G. Koman Race for the Cure® and American Cancer Society® Making Strides Again Cancer® walks. And every year, we outfit volunteers with custom t-shirts that feature an empowering message. This year’s slogan for the Making Strides walk was no different: “Treasure Your Chest. No rest ‘Til We Save Every Breast.” We walked with 100 local folks and have earned a blue ribbon recognition for our fundraising efforts for breast cancer research.
Here are some photos from this year’s inspiring event. To see images of events from years past, check out our Facebook page at www.facebook.com/womensimagingcenter.
