Taking Steps Against Breast Cancer Walk Sept 24
Submitted By jbrock on Thursday, September 15, 2016
Over the past few years, players from St.Marys Minor Hockey have participated in the Taking Steps to End Breast Cancer walk, which takes place annually near the end of September.  Since they began, players have raised money to support Breast Cancer research, and this year, players from both boys and girls teams are encouraged to participate in the walk.

The Taking Steps Against Breast Cancer event is taking place on Saturday, September 24th, 2016. There is a breakfast buffet available at the Creamery beginning at 8:00 am, with proceeds going to the cause.  The event itself gets underway at 9:00, leaving from the Flats. 



From the event site: "It is estimated that in 2015 24,400 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer and 5,000 women will die from it. Breast cancer is the most common cancer among Canadian women and the 2nd leading cause of death for Canadian women. Taking Steps Against Breast Cancer is a chance for the community to come together and take a stand in the fight against breast cancer. The Canadian Cancer Society is the largest charitable funder of cancer research in Canada. To date, supporters have donated close to 100 million dollars to the Society for life-saving cancer research. This event is a leisurely 5 kilometre walk that places place at Milt Dunnell Field- The Flats in St Marys. We are raising money to fund life-saving breast cancer research that will help discover cures, find new ways to prevent breast cancer, and develop improved treatment and support options that will assist people living with the disease. This event is also a wonderful way to celebrate survivors in our community and remember those who have lost their lives to the disease".

All teams are encouraged to consider this event as a great early season teambuilder, that not only helps to bring players together, but does so in the name of a very worthwhile cause.

More information can be found at the event website


Donations can also be made through the website, or teams may consider setting up a profile so they can be recognized for their efforts.
