Hero of Research

We put the challenge out to MSABC teams to raise $175,500.  If they could accomplish this hefty goal, they would have an opportunity to name a research grant in honor of a loved one or their team. This year we had THREE teams achieve the Hero of Research Award, AutoZone, GM Women of Finance and Linda’s Angels.

Outstanding job.

Spirit of Strides

The Spirit of Strides Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Awards seek to honor and recognize all those who have gone above and beyond to help the American Cancer Society continue our work to end breast cancer as we know it through Making Strides Against Breast Cancer. From engaging survivors and thrivers or an entire community, to promoting your event or creating an event experience to remember, our individual victories will collectively translate to the ultimate victory of beating our biggest rival – breast cancer.
