Supporters engage in the Making Strides Breast Cancer Awareness Walk By Alice Frascella '25

Making Strides hosted The Breast Cancer Awareness Walk at Sherwood Island on Oct. 15. Participants help fund more scientific research for breast cancer and spread awareness about the disease.

As people walk, bright pink signs provide facts and information about donations and support.
Right when walking in, one of the first things to catch the eye is the huge concrete truck and bright pink tent reading "Pour the Town Pink." Many people wear merchandise supporting the event.
203 and other Westport merchandise was everywhere during the event and many people wore their clothes during the walk.
Kids enjoy the cotton candy machine and fire truck on site.
Stop and Shop is a big hit at this event as many cheerleaders began walking over to grab a bit. Stop and Shop is one of the main sponsors for the event. According to their website, Stop and Shop raises over $1.6 million to support the fight against breast cancer.
The blowing wind forced some to take down their tents but did not cancel the event or deter people from perusing merchandise.
Some adults, kids and dogs decide to take a golf cart ride after and many walk down and relax at the beach once they finish the walk.
One dad and son play football.
Although this event is over, there are some more events similar to this and around the area during the month of October. One being The East End NRZ Breast Cancer Awareness Walk & Run in Bridgeport Connecticut on Saturday Oct. 28th.
