The American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk of Sacramento will be held on Sunday, October 18 at the West Steps of the State Capitol, and will unite the community with a shared determination to finish the fight against breast cancer. Dollars raised enable the Society to fund breast cancer research; provide free, comprehensive information and support to those touched by the disease; and help people take steps to reduce their breast cancer risk or find it early when it's most treatable.
