On Saturday, Oct. 15 bright and early in the morning, our Colleges Against Cancer club members, along with faculty and staff from Central Penn College, joined around 20,000 participants in the annual Harrisburg Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk. The loop starts on City Island in (as you can see) a sea of various PINK hats, shirts, scarves, etc. The path continues over the pedestrian bridge and down Front Street of Harrisburg and circles back along the river until you reach the pedestrian bridge again and cross the finish line.
Colleges Against Cancer Club is comprised of several students who have facilitated fundraising over the past couple months for the event. So far they have raised more than $1,200 toward the fight against breast cancer. Making Strides is part of the American Cancer Society. Our donations and fundraising efforts go toward promoting prevention and early detection, as well as supporting patients in their recovery, pursuing lifesaving treatments and fighting back.
