In the past 21 years, 10 million walkers have raised more than $594 million. This year, Los Angeles will host its inaugural MSABC walk on Saturday, October 18 at NOKIA Plaza at L.A. LIVE. Registration begins at 7 am and the walk at 8 am.
Thousands of diverse Angelenos are expected to walk.
“As the most powerful force to end this deadly disease,Making Strides Against Breast Cancer brings communities together,” said Jordan Buskirk, event lead for the MSABC walk in Los Angeles. “The progress we are making is remarkable, but more people are needed to help finish the fight.”
