October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and on Sunday, October 20th members of the Westport Woman’s Club will again be walking as a team in the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk at Sherwood Island State Park. This walk, sponsored by the American Cancer Society, helps to raise funds for breast cancer research and to raise awareness.
Please go to the Making Strides for Breast Cancer Walk website, click on the Westport location, and register under the Westport Woman’s Club team. Even if you are unable to participate in the walk, you may still make a donation. You may also register when you arrive at the walk.
Our walk is slightly more than one mile. The comraderie with thousands of other walkers is heartwarming. Please join us – our group will meet at 9:30am at the flag pole near the pavilion. Look for our white and pink sign with the Westport Woman’s Club name on it. Contact Audrey Rabinowitz at firstname.lastname@example.org or 203-227-6010 if you plan to walk (so that we can look for you) or you have any questions.
After the walk, our team continues our comraderie at the Sherwood Diner for brunch!
And remember to make an appointment for your mammogram. Early detection is very important.
