What unites us ignites us! On Sunday, Oct. 13, pink was the color and "Younited so that no one walks alone" was the theme as survivors, caregivers, men and women from all walks of life joined together to celebrate their passion for saving lives from breast cancer.

The Making Strides Against Breast Cancer event at Peoples Natural Gas Field in Blair County drew a large and enthusiastic crowd to raise money for research and awareness about breast cancer and the positive impact made for those battling this diagnosis.

Through the American Cancer Society (ACS) and Making Strides, more than $64 million are currently invested in breast cancer research grants. In 2018, the ACS provided more than 480,000 free rides to and from treatment, more than 34,000 patients received personal assistance understanding their diagnosis and get the help they need and more than 6,700 one-on-one support services were provided to breast cancer patients in 2018.
