The Kickoff breakfast for Making Strides Against Breast Cancer was Wednesday at Skyline Country Club and was open to the public for the very first time.

KGUN9's Stella Inger and Mix-FM's Mrs. Grant appeared at the eent.

The American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walks raise awareness and funds to save lives from breast cancer. Each event is a noncompetitive 3 to 5 mile walk that brings people together to make a difference for everyone who has been touched by breast cancer. The events raise money to fund innovative research, provide free information and support, and to help people reduce their breast cancer risk or find it early when it's most treatable.

From the opening ceremony to the post-walk entertainment, a Making Strides event is a celebration of survivors and opportunity to remember loved-ones lost. It's a day that shouldn't be missed and won't be forgotten.

Making Strides Against Breast Cancer events raise awareness and money to save lives from breast cancer. And it all depends on you. The money you raise and the donations you make are helping the American Cancer Society create a world free from the pain and suffering of breast cancer.

The money raised funds innovative breast cancer research, 24/7 information and support, prevention and early detection initiatives, and so much more. Please consider joining a Making Strides event and raising money or making a donation today.

The American Cancer Society would not be successful without the help of generous donors and volunteers. Because of you, we've been able to fund life-saving breast cancer research studies, crucial patient care programs, and education and prevention initiatives that have helped thousands of people across the globe. That's why it's so important to participate in your Making Strides Against Breast Cancer event and fundraise—because when you do, you help save lives from breast cancer.
