My first involvement with this chapter was in 2005 and I am thrilled to see how they have grown. My mom is a three time breast cancer survivor, so I value the importance of their work. I now have a very dear friend who is a survivor and works diligently as a volunteer for the chapter. I encourage you to support this organization and impact our friends locally. Keep up the great work!

I have never been involved in such a well organized event. Our church organized a group to walk. Only one of us had participated in the past, and we were all blown away. Every detail was taken care of with precision. Our group can't wait for next year and we already have more recruits. You cannot explain how wonderful the day was, and how meaningful, unless you were there. Thank you to the wonderful staff for overseeing such a spectacular event!
