Groups walk for a cure

By Taylor Cotton The Stentor

On Oct. 10, the annual Breast Cancer Awareness Walk was held in Detroit. Also known as Making Strides of Detroit, this non-competitive 5K walk started at Hart Plaza. People from all walks of life and in all types of pink costumes and hues came early for the energizing warm-up and registration at 8:30 a.m.

“It’s so funny how people say that there isn’t much to do in the D, but it’s wonderful how we can all get together to save the ta-tas,” said breast cancer survivor Dina Lee.

There were all types of supporters at the walk: mourners with posters of loved ones, males with pink wigs and prominent city leaders.

Strolling along the Riverwalk, there were motivational cheers and free merchandise.

“I’m an emotional person, so I did tear up towards the end to hear who the walkers were fighting for, hearing the testimonies.”

“Everyone is fighting to end breast cancer, boys and girls,” said Detroit resident Dawn Cotton. “We have to stand together to win this.”
