Making Strides Against Breast Cancer

Making Strides Against Breast Cancer

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - A local Sunday afternoon tradition is moving to a Saturday morning this year.

The American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk has been scheduled for Oct. 28 at Waterfront Park. Registration opens at 7 a.m., and the walk begins at 9 a.m. It is one of the most popular and emotional events in WAVE Country.

Making Strides is a walk to help save lives, celebrate survivors and honor loved ones lost. With every dollar raised, the American Cancer Society is able to make a bigger impact by helping conduct innovative research, promote early detection and simply provide a hand to hold. Organizers encourage participants to form teams and raise money well ahead of the walk. The fundraising goal for 2017 is $665,000.

WAVE 3 News anchor Dawne Gee and meteorologist Ryan Hoke, both of whom have personal connections to breast cancer, will emcee the event as they did in 2016.
