Every year, the American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walks raise both awareness of and funds for the cause. This year’s Making Strides of Westchester walk will take place October 15 at Manhattanville College in Purchase. “Our walk provides our passionate participants with meaningful ceremonies…and the opportunity to celebrate and remember their loved ones impacted by breast cancer,” says Jodie Graber-Raff, ACS senior community development manager. This year, 20,000 to 23,000 participants are expected. Check-in begins at 8 am; the walk starts at 9:30 am. Visit www.makingstrideswalk.org/Westchester.
