The Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk is Saturday, Oct. 19 at Settlers Cabin Park, North Fayette.

The “Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk” is Saturday morning at Settlers Cabin Park in North Fayette.

More than 1,500 cancer survivors, their caregivers, family, friends, and supporters are expected to attend.

Money raised will help the American Cancer Soceity society fund breast cancer research.

The cancer society reports that since 1993, more than 15 million Making Strides Against Breast Cancer supporters have raised more than $935 million nationwide.

Breast cancer is one of the most common types of cancer in American women, impacting nearly one in eight, said Dan Tobin, director of communications at the American Cancer Society in a statement.

“The American Cancer Society is there for people in every community affected by breast cancer, whether they’re currently dealing with a diagnosis, may face one in the future, or will avoid it altogether because of education and risk reduction,” Tobin said.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
