Making Strides Against Breast Cancer 2016 says
It's our 20th Anniversary, and we'd love for you to join us at Lake Eola Park in Downtown Orlando on October 29th, 2016 for one, big, PINK walk in the fight against breast cancer!

Regsistration: 7am
Walk: 9am

The 20th Anniversary Orlando Strides walk will take place the morning of October 29th. Beginning at Lake Eola, the 3.2 mile walk route will feature 20 entertainment stages culminating in a party at Church Street.

Last year’s event drew 60,000 participants and raised over $945,000. This year’s 20th Anniversary fundraising goal of $1,000,000+ dollars will be used for breast cancer research and services.

Anyone interested in learning more about the event can call the local American Cancer Society offices at 407-581-2529.

Lucille O’Neal Joins the American Cancer Society’s Orlando Strides Event as Honorary Chairperson.
Mother of Shaquille O’Neal Lends Voice to Cancer Cause.

Reverend Doctor Lucille O’Neal will be the Honorary Chairperson at this year’s 20th Anniversary of Making Strides Against Breast Cancer 5K Fundraising Walk on October 29th!

Lucille has been a member of the Orlando community since 1992 when her oldest son, basketball great Shaquille O’Neal, began playing for the Magic.

Lucille has seen many family and friends battle cancer. She is passionate about getting information on local and national resources into the hands of underserved communities so a cancer diagnosis is not an automatic death sentence.

Lucille O’Neal is joining forces with ACS and OrlandoStrides to strengthen its obligation to communities where the information is not readily available. Members of these communities worry that having no insurance shuts them off from medical care.

What do we do? How can we help?
Anything that we know about the American Cancer Society, any service, it should be disseminated to everybody.

A kickoff celebration event will take place at Lexus of Orlando, a pink premier OrlandoStrides sponsor, on August 25, 2016.
