Mayor James Barberio attended the “Making Strides Against Breast Cancer” walk held in Parsippany.
In a statement from Mayor Barberio, “It was truly nice to meet Lizzette Dorado, Director of Community Development and Katelyn Tiernan, Community Development Manager. I would like to thank them for raising awareness for this event. I was extremely proud to see so many Parsippany residents attend and show their support.”
The American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walks raise awareness and funds to save lives from breast cancer. Each event is a noncompetitive 3 to 5 mile walk that brings people together to make a difference for everyone who has been touched by breast cancer. The events raise money to fund innovative research, provide free information and support, and to help people reduce their breast cancer risk or find it early when it’s most treatable.
From the opening ceremony to the post-walk entertainment, a Making Strides event is a celebration of survivors and opportunity to remember loved-ones lost. It’s a day that shouldn’t be missed and won’t be forgotten.
