More than 500 Calhoun County residents came together Saturday at Mill Race Park for the American Cancer Society's Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk.

The event raised $51,000 for a world without breast cancer.

“The October 21 event was a moving example of passion in action,” Katie Jones, senior community development manager for the American Cancer Society, said. “Our Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk ensures no one faces breast cancer alone by bringing the community together, funding innovative breast cancer research, promoting education and risk reduction, and providing comprehensive patient support to those who need it most.”

Since 1993, more than 13 million supporters have raised more than $810 million nationwide.

According to the American Cancer Society, an estimated 252,710 women in the United States will be diagnosed with breast cancer and 40,610 will die from the disease this year.
