MISHAWAKA, Ind. – A walk was held in Mishawaka Saturday morning to save lives and support survivors of breast cancer.
Held in Central Park, Making Strides Against Breast Cancer isnt just a walk its a movement bringing together nearly 1,000 people who are either breast cancer survivors, breast cancer patients, or supporters of the cause to raise money and walk toward a future without breast cancer.
Today, theres 3.5 million breast cancer survivors living in the United States, and were making incredible progress, said Jamie Miller, senior development manager for the American Cancer Society. And so, what it means to them is support. It means love, it means that theyre not alone. It means the world coming alongside them to help them in their journey.

Susan G Komen Breast Cancer Awareness Walk Returns After Pandemic Break
The Susan G. Komen More Than Pink walk has returned for its first in-person walk since the pandemic.
“Every single person here has a story. They have been touched by this disease,” said Vice President Kate Watt. “And we all stand united in one goal, which is to end breast cancer.”
In addition to commemorating Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the proceeds of the walk hope to help with the economic, medical, social and emotional impact of a breast cancer diagnosis.
“I do this walk for people who weren’t like me who don’t have insurance, so they can get mammograms,” said breast cancer survivor Estelle Freeman.
Freeman said because of her insurance coverage she was able to schedule regular mammograms which helped catch her breast cancer before it worsened.
“A mammogram is the best thing you can do to for hope and to save lives,” she added.
Thousands of people typically participate in the event, many of whom, like Freeman, are breast cancer survivors.
“We all know somebody that’s been affected by breast cancer,” said Crump. “I had it on both sides of my family, my sister but coming to an event like this where you are surrounded by the sisterhood of other breast cancer survivors of all different years, all different types of breast cancer. You can find somebody that has gone through the same journey that you have and just hug each other.”

This isnt what I wanted.
Welcome to our Team Page. We’ve formed a team because this cause is important to us. We want to help. And walking and raising money in our local American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer event is the best way we can do that. We all have different reasons for participating but we share a determination to help save lives from breast cancer.
There are so many ways that the money our team raises helps. Its helping fund innovative research. It’s providing free information for people dealing with the disease. Its providing rides to treatment and places to stay for people who have to seek treatment far from home. In short, our money is helping save lives. Consider donating to our team and helping advance the cause.
How We Support the American Cancer Society
Of course we walk in the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer event. And we solicit donations from family, friends, and other supporters. But we also schedule fundraisers in lead-up to the big event. Bake-sales, car washes, and countless other types of events. And we promote those on social media, through Facebook and Twitter, by word of mouth, and through flyers at work and around the neighborhood. The success of fundraising events depends on two things – hard work and getting the word out. And we’re out to do both. Keep an eye out for our fundraising events.
Join us. Donate today. Or walk with us.

I was lucky, said survivor Sherri Hoffman. I didnt have chemo and radiation like most of these ladies did. I did have expanders and I had reconstruction, but I stand here today with the big word of awareness,
I dont get to have a bad day, I just have moments, said cancer patient Kari Nickell. Well get through it together, for sure. This is the epitome of no one fights alone.

The world’s leading breast cancer organization held its More than Pink Walk in Pittsburgh’s Schenley Park Sunday.
The Susan G. Komen West Pennsylvania More than Pink Walk, which replaced the annual Race for the Cure event, kicked off Mother’s Day morning. For the first time ever, there was no cost to participate.
Everyone at the walk had a story. Some offered hope, some walked for research, some walked for a family member.
Breast cancer survivors and fighters shared those powerful stories as the community came together to fight against breast cancer.
It gives people like me hope and positivity, and I think that’s what we need today. I think we need to be represented in a positive way and our stories should be heard, The Pittsburgh Mermaid said.
Its very touching. My mom passed away from breast cancer in 2011, and so I have been a team captain since 1999, and we have done this race in honor of her and in memory of her, Julie Senchak said.
