Thousands Will Gather This Weekend in Point Pleasant Beach to Battle Breast Cancer
October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month and there are many efforts to help bring awareness and fundraising to the battle against this disease. Many organizations around New Jersey, the nation, and the world are involved in finding a cure for breast cancer.
According to Google, "Each year in the United States, about 264,000 cases of breast cancer are diagnosed in women and about 2,400 in men. About 42,000 women and 500 men in the U.S. die each year from breast cancer." These figures come from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
This weekend thousands will be gathering in Ocean County to fundraise in the battle against breast cancer. The annual American Cancer Society Making Strides walk will take place in Point Pleasant Beach. There could be over 20,000 people on hand for this annual fundraiser which could generate a million dollars in fundraising efforts.
