Brunswick Residents Needed to Finish the Fight Against Breast Cancer


The American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk of Brunswick will be held Saturday, October 18, 2014. Breast cancer survivors and community members are invited to sign up and join us at the Brunswick Town Mall on Saturday, October 18, 2014. Registration will begin at 10:00am and the walk is set to start at 11:00am.  Residents are encouraged to sign up online at and form a team to walk in this inspiring community event in an effort to raise awareness and funds to support the Society’s mission to help finish the fight against breast cancer.

 Making Strides Against Breast Cancer is the largest network of breast cancer awareness events in the nation, uniting nearly 300 communities to raise awareness and funds to end breast cancer. Dollars raised from the noncompetitive events help the Society invest in groundbreaking breast cancer research AND provide free information and services for women who need them.


This October there will be four Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walks taking place across Maine. Each of the Maine events will begin with a complimentary reception for breast cancer survivors and caregivers -- those who have cared for them throughout their diagnosis and treatment.  There will be light refreshments and information on the impact of Making Strides Against Breast Cancer.

Making Strides Against Breast Cancer has no registration fee and no minimum fundraising amount, but encourages contributions through online registration and donations. This event is open to the public and volunteers are also needed to ensure this year’s Making Strides event is a success. To register, become a volunteer or for more information, visit


About the American Cancer Society

The American Cancer Society is a global grassroots force of more than three million volunteers saving lives and fighting for every birthday threatened by every cancer in every community. As the largest voluntary health organization, the Society's efforts have contributed to a 20 percent decline in cancer death rates in the U.S. since 1991, and a 50 percent drop in smoking rates. Thanks to our progress, nearly 14 million Americans who have had cancer and countless more who have avoided it will celebrate more birthdays this year. We’re determined to make this cancer’s last century and finish the fight. We're finding cures as the nation’s largest private, not-for-profit investor in cancer research, ensuring people facing cancer have the help they need and continuing the fight for access to quality health care, lifesaving screenings, clean air, and more.
