St. Cloud State students will join area residents in the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer 5K walk Saturday, Oct. 23 at the Hallenbeck Hall Field House.

Registration begins at 7 a.m. and the event starts at 9 a.m.

organized by the American Cancer Society, the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk is a noncompetitive event that unites the community to honor and celebrate breast cancer survivors.

Other goals include educating women about reducing their cancer risk, providing hope to people facing the disease and raising money to fund lifesaving research and support programs to further progress against the disease.  

“We are pleased the event has moved to the St. Cloud State campus this year, during homecoming,” said Kim Orn, manager of the Strides event. “We will feature breast cancer survivors from campus and the community which will show that breast cancer affects women of all ages.”

The event honorary survivors are Serafina Scholl, a St. Cloud State graduate student studying special education and Dee Rengel, a St. Cloud resident.

Start a team and sign up for the event.

The American Cancer Society is a global grassroots force of more than three million volunteers. It is the nation’s largest non-governmental investor in cancer research, contributing nearly $3.4 billion. To learn more, call 1-800-227-2345
