Make Strides in the Fight Against Breast Cancer in Rhode Island on October 18th


Today is “No Bra Day”, a day created to reportedly raise awareness for breast cancer. Not wearing a bra will not save lives from breast cancer or support men and women fighting it today.

Increased access to screenings and funding research to find better ways to detect, treat and prevent breast cancer will. If you don’t want to wear a bra today, don’t. But don’t do it in the name of breast cancer awareness. ‪

Please join us in supporting the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Providence Walk, the walk here in Rhode Island is quickly approaching.

Join thousands of people on October 18th in Downtown Providence and help raise money, because no man or women should ever have to take the journey alone.

Our friend Megan Anderson, Community Manager-American Cancer Society/Making Strides Against Breast Cancer, and Laurie Pichette (participant and breast cancer survivor), joined The Rhode Show on Tuesday, October 13th to talk more about their upcoming event in the fight against this disease.

You can help finish the fight against breast cancer by raising funds for and walking with American Cancer Society Making Strides of Providence. Join more than one million people each year who are helping to end breast cancer.

Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walks are the largest network of breast cancer awareness events in the nation, uniting nearly 300 communities with a shared determination to finish the fight. By signing up, fundraising, and participating in one of our noncompetitive, three- to five-mile walks, you will help us be there for everyone in every community touched by breast cancer. You will help those who are currently dealing with a breast cancer diagnosis, those who may face a diagnosis in the future, and those who may avoid a diagnosis altogether thanks to education and prevention.

Every Making Strides event is an incredible and inspiring opportunity to unite as a community to honor and celebrate breast cancer survivors, raise awareness about the disease, and raise money to help the American Cancer Society save lives from breast cancer by funding groundbreaking breast cancer research, providing free comprehensive information and support, and helping people take steps to reduce their risk of the disease or find it early when it’s most treatable.

For more information about breast cancer, how to find it early, contact the American Cancer Society at 1-800-227-2345 anytime, day or night.
