Several men and women became a very important person this season when they attended the American Cancer Society V.I. Pink Launch Party. This fun-filled event took place to support the annual Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk.
As you may or may not know, October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, but teams can begin their fundraising now! Many supporters joined many survivors on May 6 as they celebrated their continuing success to help support the American Cancer Society’s missions at the magnificent Seasons 52 in Palm Beach Gardens. Guests sampled delicious food and tasty concoctions while learning more information about the upcoming walk in the fall and how to join the fight against breast cancer.
The annual walk is scheduled for October 18 at the Meyer Amphitheatre in West Palm Beach and is expecting over 6,000 participants this year. If you didn’t have a chance to attend this event, the fight is not over. Visit www.makingstrideswalk.org/palmbeach to learn how you can help. Join a team, donate or become a volunteer. Any effort counts and truly makes a difference to those who hold this cause dear to their heart.
Jennifer Martinez, president of JLM Communications, has her own reasons for supporting: “I am proud to serve as communications chair for the 2014 walk. This year I had my own battle with breast cancer and this walk is very important to me. I want to do all I can to create awareness and work towards finding a cure for the disease that affects so many.”
The Making Strides Against Breast Cancer program helps fund breast cancer research, educates those about breast cancer detection and prevention, and provides many services that improve the quality of life for patients, survivors and loved ones.
Be one of those heroes that help in the fight against this and other devastating diseases by supporting the American Cancer Society and their goal in that they have “worked relentlessly to save lives and create a world with less cancer and more birthdays. Together with millions of supporters worldwide, [they] help people stay well, help people get well, find cures, and fight back against cancer.”
Wear pink, and walk proud!
