TUCSON, Ariz. — KGUN 9 and Evening News Anchor Valerie Cavazos are joining the fight against breast cancer because we understand that almost everyone has been touched by breast cancer in some way.

Together, we've decided to make a difference by working to raise money for the American Cancer Society's Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Tucson event on Sunday, October 18th.

A decision has been made to suspend the traditional Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk, but we will be conducting a "Drive" for Making Strides Against Breast Cancer where you can "pink-out" your car and drive a designated route along major streets in Tucson, making stops along the way. We'll start in the parking lot of GEICO and work our way around Tucson.

KGUN 9 News Anchor, Valerie Cavazos hosted a lively Pink Premiere Party along with Meredith Dunkel, Morning Show Host on 94.9 MIXfm discussing this year's Making Strides event with Dr. Liz Almli, a breast cancer survivor and President of Tucson Cancer Conquerors, as well as Denis Cournoyer from the American Cancer Society.

Making Strides has always been more than just a walk, it’s a movement. Because of the pandemic, how we unite and fight back this fall will look different but our passion to end breast cancer is the same. In 2020, we are making it easier for anyone, anywhere to make an impact. We know the future can be free from breast cancer. We’re asking you to join the movement and sign up to save lives.


Today 1 of every 2 women newly diagnosed with breast cancer reaches out to the American Cancer Society for help and support. The donations we raise will enable investment in groundbreaking breast cancer research, free information and services for women diagnosed with the disease, and access to mammograms for women who need them. Your donations will help more than 2.5 million breast cancer survivors celebrate another birthday this year!

Saving lives from breast cancer starts one team, one participant, and one dollar at a time. We know that the American Cancer Society is the leader in the fight to end breast cancer. We know that supporting them will ensure that if you need someone to talk to any time of the day or night, they'll be there.

Join us and together we will work toward a world without breast cancer.
