The annual Making Strides walk along the Wilmington Riverfront is back on Saturday, Oct. 13. The 5k walk and run raises money for breast cancer research. The American Cancer Association has a $275,000 goal for the event, so even those who don’t walk are encouraged to donate.
The day is a community-building event for supporters of the fundraiser and for those directly affected by breast cancer. A special area will be reserved for survivors and caregivers so they can have a place to rest comfortably.
You can register online at makingstrideswalk.org/wilmingtonde, or sign up at 7:30 a.m. the day of the walk.There will be two separate starts, the run beginning at 9 a.m., with the walk following at 9:45 and ending when the last person crosses the finish line.
