KRIS Communications is the proud media sponsor of the 2019 Making Strides Against Breast Cancer fundraiser.

Since 2009, hundreds of thousands of dollars have been raised in the fight against breast cancer by Corpus Christi.

The local American Cancer Society works year-round to make the event happen. The goal is simple — saving lives and finding a cure.

The community is encouraged to form teams, raise funds, and then join us for the Making Strides walk on October 19, 2019 at North Bayfront Park at Shoreline and Fitzgerald streets.

It’s important to note the money raised is used locally to fund breast cancer research and programs. The Corpus Christi ACS provides local women and men diagnosed with breast cancer with a number of resources including, but not limited to, free rides to doctor visits, free hotel stays for patients seeking treatment out of town, free wigs, and more.

The walk is scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 19, 2019 at North Bayfront Park. A finish line party will take place at the park immediately following the walk.
