Breast Cancer Awareness month is right around the corner, and so is the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer event.

Making Strides Against Breast Cancer will take place Sunday October 20th in Point Pleasant Beach, and we hope you can participate! Proceeds benefit the American Cancer Society.

Jennifer Hernandez, Director of Special Events from the American Cancer Society joined us on the morning show to give us all the details on the big event. To date, over 500 teams and over 2000 people are participating and have raised over $150,000 in pledges and there are still weeks to help that number grow. There are plenty of ways you can help. Even if you can't participate, you can volunteer or make a donation!

The Making Strides of Point Pleasant Beach event takes place Sunday October 20th at Silver Lake Parking Lot at 10:00am. So if you can, please join local breast cancer survivors, caregivers, and other people who have been touched by this devastating disease and help make a difference.
