Making Strides Against Breast Cancer North Shore Walk at Westfield Old Orchard

Westfield is joining the fight against breast cancer this October for Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  Project Pink, a 5k non-competitive walk, will be taking over the shopping center beginning at 9 a.m. Sunday, October 21.  Westfield’s Project Pink is one of more than 250 nationwide Making Strides events and aims to show support to the American Cancer Society’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer.  It’s a celebrated and special occasion designed to express hope and celebrate Breast Cancer survivorship. Additionally, Project Pink will focus on raising awareness about steps women can take to help prevent the disease and raise money to find cures. 

Participating Westfield retailers will feature special pink merchandise and donate proceeds from sales to Making Strides.  There is no registration or minimum amount to rise required for Project Pink, however participants are welcome to raise money online or collect donations to turn in on the day of the event.  For more information and to sign up for Project Pink visit www.makingstrides.acsevents.org.

Project Pink is looking for models to participate in this year’s survivor fashion show in support of the American Cancer Society.  All individuals whose lives have been touched by breast cancer are welcome to inquire -- children, men, women, survivors, caregivers, etc. Those interested in taking part can contact Jenna Kastan at jenna.kastan@cancer.org or 847-328-5147, opt 3 to find out more information.
