Record Number Attends Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk In Detroit

Record Number Attends Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk In Detroit”

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and on Friday night, hundreds of people gathered for a pink-themed fundraiser.

To help raise money, almost 50 women worked together in groups to pull a 26,000 lb. concrete mixer.

"We always say our survivors are our celebrities". More than $57,000 was raised by teams, individuals, and companies.

Today's event was created to help men, women, and children of all ages get involved in fitness training and staying active while becoming more aware of healthy habits and listening to your body. "She wouldn't have died from a disease that was preventable", Shapiro said of her mother.

This year's goal is to raise more than $37,000, which is used for breast cancer research and programs that provide services to breast cancer patients, such as Look Good, Feel Better and Reach to Recovery. Since then, the tumor has been removed and Payne went through chemotherapy treatment. Two breast cancer survivors were also in attendance to give their story on the long journey they've had fighting the disease. Through her experience, she said support from family, friends and the community had a significant impact. The money raised at events across the country support the fight against the second leading cause of cancer death in women. "That's just what I'm here for, to bring a positive light into the community".
