Coaches vs. Cancer Basket “Ball”!

Real Men Wear Pink gives men a leadership role in the fight against breast cancer. Community leaders around the nation use the power of pink to raise awareness and money for the American Cancer Society’s breast cancer initiatives.

Making Strides has always been more than just a walk, it’s a movement. Because of the pandemic, how we unite and fight back this fall may look different but our passion to end breast cancer is the same.

Relay For Life may look different this year, but now more than ever, cancer patients and researchers need your help to sustain the fight against cancer. Our lifesaving mission has been threatened by suspended events and a decrease in donations, so your support is urgently needed to continue research, patient programs and cancer screening.

On behalf of our Capital Region ACS Staff Team, we can’t thank this community enough for coming out for the 26th Annual #MakingStridesAgainstBreastCancer walk! Many more pink pictures and updates to come but until then, just know how much we appreciate each and every one of you 💕
This racial disparity is largely due to Black women having more advanced staged breast cancer at the time of diagnosis, higher rates of obesity and other health conditions, and certain types of breast cancers that have a less favorable prognosis. These disparities are largely grounded in historical and persistent racism in the U.S., preventing Black women from accessing high-quality cancer treatment and staying on track with treatment compared with white women.
