Teams and individuals from all over the coast will descend on the Biloxi Town Green for the Breast Cancer Awareness Making Strides Against Breast Cancer 5k Walk on Oct. 19, 2013. Details about these events can be found at Makingstrides.ascevents.org.
It will be a sea of pink. The participants will be wearing pink T-shirts, dresses, and other pink costumes. Men, women and children participate. Thousands of people from the area will be there. This is an annual event that raises money for breast cancer research and awareness. Many teams will participate and will be selling T-shirts to raise donations.
Everyone knows of someone that has or has had breast cancer. Walking in this event shows great support. People can walk at their own speed. There will be emergency services there to make sure that the event goes smoothly.
Forming a team is fun and members can give support to each other to make it a wonderful time. Team members get donations from their friends, family and neighbors to walk in the event. The event will raise thousands of dollars for the cause. So wear something pink and join in on the fun at the Biloxi Town Green.
