Lace up and join Merrimack County 储蓄 Bank (The Merrimack) in Making Strides Against Breast Cancer on Sunday, 10月15日th at Memorial Field in Concord. This is The Merrimack’s 8th year returning as the Survivorship Sponsor of Survivor Place, totaling more than $80,000 in donations over the years. Survivor Place is a special tent that provides all survivors and thrivers an inviting area to experience the strength of uniting with others who have faced similar challenges.
“Making Strides is more than a walk for us, it’s a movement to end breast 癌症 and we’re happy to support this fight in any small way we can,琳达·洛登说, President of The Merrimack. “It’s truly inspirational to see 新汉普郡 come together in waves of pink to honor loved ones who have been affected by breast 癌症.”
New to this year’s event is the addition of the Tribute Garden, a special display to show the love and support for the men and women who courageously stood up to breast 癌症. When a pink pinwheel is purchased in tribute, it’s added to the designated garden space at Memorial Field on event day.
“We’re extremely grateful for The Merrimack’s generosity year after year,凯西·拉斯说, Volunteer Director of Sponsorship at the American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer of New Hampshire. “This collective effort not only helps to fund research, it also provides patients with access to quality 护理 and the support they need during their journey.”
每年, Making Strides attracts thousands of walkers and raises about $500,000 for the American Cancer Society. For more information, registration, or to make a donation, visit the 活动页面.
