Each year, Federico walks in the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer 5k and the Look Good Feel Better program designed by the American Cancer Society.
Making Strides Against Breast Cancer is the largest network of breast cancer awareness events in the nation, uniting nearly 300 communities to finish the fight. Every breast cancer walk and event is an incredible and inspiring opportunity to honor those who have battled breast cancer, raise awareness about what we can do to reduce our breast cancer risk, and raise money to help the American Cancer Society fight the disease with research, information and services, and access to mammograms for women who need them.
After my mother’s first diagnosis and subsequent remission of breast cancer, she participated in as much outreach as she could involving this disease. Federico’s participation in the Making Strides walk is a small way of honoring my mother and her advocacy. – Joseph Federico
This year we have an added incentive for our students and community to help us in the fight against breast cancer. Every dollar donated on behalf of a student will be matched in service dollars for the donor. Students who raise $100 in donations will receive an exclusive Federico designed shirt for FREE. Students may also purchase shirts for $15 to help support the cause.
Join Team Anne on Sunday, October 20, 2013 at the State Capitol and help us Make Strides Against Breast Cancer!
