October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month
BRIGHTON, Mich. - October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month which means there will be a variety of events in your community and beyond to help raise awareness in the ongoing fight against breast cancer. Whether you're looking to participate in the fight, or simply become more aware of breast cancer and how it affects lives, there is a lot that you can do in and around the Brighton community.

On a local scale, there will be a handful of walks throughout the month of October where you can participate and honor breast cancer survivors, or remember those we have lost. Not to mention, you support vital patient programs by participating! The Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk is a great way to bring awareness to communities, raise money for the American Cancer Society, and bring the world on step closer to new treatments and a cure. The Michigan Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walks are:

October 5, 2013 - Rochester Municipal Park, Pine and 6th Street, Rochester, MI 48307

October 12, 2013 - Howell Court House, 200 E. Grand River Ave, Howell, MI 48843

If you'd like to participate in one of the above walks, or (for our out-of-state readers) find one in your community, we encourage you to visit

On a national level, there are numerous ways that you can make a difference in the fight against breast cancer - supporting the Ford Warriors in Pink is one of them. Ford Motor Company is proud to be active warriors in the fight against breast cancer, which is why Ford established the Warriors in Pink and the Ford Warriors in pink line of wear and gear in 2006. 100% of the net proceeds from all the wear and gear sales goes directly to the cause. 2013 is the 19th year that Ford Motor Company has offered their support - to date, Ford has dedicated more than $120 million to the cause.

Although October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, it's important to be informed all year long.
