Join the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk

Breast Cancer Walk
Sunrise Chevrolet is proud to be participating in the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk on Sunday, Oct. 16 at Cantigny Park in Wheaton, and we’re looking for more participants and support! Learn more about the event, the cause, and what your donation means!

The Cause

The American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk is an event meant to raise awareness and funds to fight breast cancer. All money raised through the walk goes toward the American Cancer Society’s efforts to support those affected by breast cancer in every community, including those who currently have a breast cancer diagnosis, those who may face a future diagnosis, and those who may avoid a diagnosis altogether thanks to education and risk reduction. Sunrise Chevrolet is participating in the walk because almost everyone in today’s society has been touched by breast cancer in some way, and the team wants to make a difference.
