SAAC to Take Part in Making Strides Against Breast Cancer

The Texas A&M-Corpus Christi Student-Athlete Advisory Committee will take part in the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer charity walk on Saturday, Oct. 22, as part of its community service efforts this fall.

 

"This is a wonderful cause and a great event for our student-athletes and staff," SAAC advisor Kayleigh McCauley said. "Everyone knows someone who has been impacted by breast cancer and we're glad to do anything we can to help the fight. We also encourage our fans to join the walk or donate to the cause."

 

The event starts at 9 a.m. at Water Gardens in downtown Corpus Christi. Participants raise money by participating in the walk, with members of the public encouraged to donate to the cause. Fans can click here for more information on the event.

 

In 2010, more than 800,000 walkers across the country joined the American Cancer Society in our united fight against breast cancer. Together, they raised more than $60 million through Making Strides events. More than a walk, the American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer is a powerful and inspiring event that unites communities to celebrate people who have battled cancer, raise awareness about the steps people can take to help prevent the disease, and raise money to find cures and support programs and services for those facing the disease.
