Concord steps up yet again! Over 4,500 amazing people turned out on a pleasant Autumn day to show support for Making Strides Against Breast Cancer. Together they raised $476,510 toward the fight against one of the leading causes of cancer and in support of the people dealing with the disease.
“Today’s event was a moving example of passion in action,” said Kimberly Laro, Volunteer Director of Publicity, “Our Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk ensures no one faces breast cancer alone by bringing the community together, funding innovative breast cancer research, promoting education and risk reduction, and providing comprehensive patient support to those who need it most.”
This is my third year volunteering my photography for the event (and this year the temperature was much nicer). I enjoy feeling the energy and capturing the range of emotions by survivors, current patients, caregivers, and supporters. I also get some good exercise by running the five mile course that everyone else is walking – well, running to get ahead, stopping and taking photos, running ahead again, etc.
