Finish The Fight Against Breast Cancer
Epsom Team: Walkers for Healthy Knockers
One hundred years ago, the American Cancer Society began the fight
of a lifetime – the fight against cancer. Now it’s time to join
together to finish the fight. Teams are forming for the 21st annual
Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk, which takes place on
Sunday, October 20, at Memorial Field in Concord at 12:30 pm. This
American Cancer Society event raises money and awareness in the
fight against breast cancer.
A team is at least 10 people who each commit to raising a minimum of
$100. Team members receive a long-sleeve Making Strides T-shirt with
their team name on the back and experience the camaraderie, support,
and spirit of sharing this inspiring event together. Many teams
participate from Chichester, Epsom, Pittsfield and Northwood
including Rockin’ Robin, Hope Rocks, Walkers for Healthy Knockers,
Pam’s Power, The Drew Crew, The Globe Striders, Charlottes Crusaders
for a Cure, Super Friends Fighting Cancer, and the Coe Brown Lady
Bears. Form your own team today!
Teams can be family and friends or corporate teams.
Anyone interested in forming a team is encouraged to attend our
Making Strides Kick-off on Thursday, August 15. For more information

Today, the American Cancer Society is the leader in the fight to end
breast cancer and all cancers. As the nation’s largest
non-governmental supporter of cancer research, the American Cancer
Society has played a role in nearly every major breast cancer
research breakthrough in the past 60 years.
The progress has been tremendous, but there is still much to do.
There are too many lives being lost to breast cancer. The American
Cancer Society is determined to make this century breast cancer’s
