In recognition of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the American Cancer Society invites the Antelope Valley community to its inaugural Making Strides Against Breast Cancer 5K noncompetitive walk, scheduled for tomorrow at the Palmdale Amphitheatre/Marie Kerr Park, 2723 W. Rancho Vista Blvd.

Registration begins at 7 a.m. Walk starts at 8 a.m.

Hundreds of walkers are expected to gather for the national crusade to raise awareness and funds to fight against breast cancer, which remains the number one public health concern facing women today.

The American Cancer Society’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk has changed the face of breast cancer in communities nationwide by funding cutting-edge research, advocating for all women to have access to mammograms and treatments, and providing free local educational programs and supportive services.
