Breast cancer walk happening Oct. 20

The American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer 3.5 will hold a noncompetitive fundraising walk on Oct. 20.

Making Strides walks in nearly 300 communities nationwide help to raise $60 million dollars for the American Cancer Society each year. The dollars raised fund groundbreaking research to find, prevent, treat and cure breast cancer; ensure access to mammograms for women who need them; and provide free resources and support to one in two newly diagnosed women who turn to the society for help and support, including transportation and lodging during treatment.

“Making Strides Against Breast Cancer unites us to walk together as the most powerful force to end breast cancer,” said Erinn Drouin, American Cancer Society community staff partner for Peterborough. “The progress we are making is remarkable, but we need volunteers to help us finish the fight.”

In 2013, the American Cancer Society celebrates its 100th birthday. To join, call 1-800-227-2345, email, or visit

There are 8 convenient walk locations in New Hampshire, including Concord, Dover, Exeter, Laconia, Manchester, Nashua, North Conway and Peterborough.
