Vote Now to Help Find a Cure!
October is breast cancer awareness month. The color of the cause is everywhere. TV stars, local officials, even brawny athletes are proudly donning pink. The tireless work of those volunteering to spread awareness and to support the search for a cure is inspiring. And, thanks to their efforts, there is more momentum than ever to find a cure for this terrible disease that one in eight women will be diagnosed with in their lifetime.
Making Strides Against Breast Cancer is the largest network of breast cancer awareness events in the nation. On October 25, Making Strides of Panama City is hosting a fundraising 5K walk at Pier Park. Already, more than 100 teams have raised more than $30,000!
