Some students and faculty members from the St. John’s community participated in the the annual Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk Sunday, Oct. 15 at Flushing Meadows Corona Park to support breast cancer awareness.

The Making Strides Against Breast Cancer event is meant to unite communities and to honor and celebrate breast cancer survivors. Money raised from the event goes toward educating women about the importance of early detection and prevention and raising money to fund research and support programs to further the progress against the disease.

According to the St. John’s section of the Making Strides website there were 589 participants and 51 teams this year. The University’s total donation goal was $10,000 but it was surpassed as $10,238 was raised.

“The American Cancer Society is an important resource for women who are newly diagnosed with breast cancer. We owe it to those women to support the organization that does more than any other for them by funding innovative research and providing free information and services,” the website says.
