Gaels Lacrosse at Breast Cancer Walk In San Francisco

Last week the Saint Mary’s lacrosse team took part in the Breast Cancer Walk in San Francisco.  The Gaels raised a total of $1,424!

The American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk is a powerful and inspiring event that unites communities to celebrate people who have battled breast cancer, raise awareness about ways to help prevent breast cancer, and raise money to find cures and support programs and services for those facing the disease.

Since 1993, nearly 7 million walkers have raised more than $400 million to help fight breast cancer through participating in the noncompetitive, 3- to 5-mile events. In 2010 alone, nearly 800,000 walkers across the country collected more than $60 million to save lives from breast cancer. Thanks in part to the dollars raised by Making Strides supporters, 2.5 million breast cancer survivors will celebrate another birthday this year. And every Making Strides event provides a chance to recognize and support breast cancer survivors and remind them that we’re in their corner through every step of their cancer experience.
