On October 22, 2022, Chenega MIOS had the opportunity to join the American Cancer Society as the Shirt Sponsors for their Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk. The walk was a beautiful 2.5-mile loop around the Tidal Basin in Washington, DC, and featured thousands of supporters teaming up with the same goal in mind – getting one step closer to putting an end to Breast Cancer.
The statistics surrounding Breast Cancer are a terrifying reality. With one in eight women, and countless men diagnosed with Breast Cancer in their lifetime in the United States, Chenega MIOS decided to take a stand to help raise awareness and funds for the cause. Through the month of October, MIOS sent out statistics and communications about Breast Cancer and the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk to help drive home the impacts this horrible disease causes, as well as the difference that can be made through everyone’s support. We are proud and humbled to have raised close to $3,400 for the American Cancer Society so that they can one day bring an end to Breast Cancer.
We thank everyone for the support they have shown throughout the month in different ways. Whether it be sharing your own story on how Breast Cancer has impacted your life, donating money, or joining us for the walk on Saturday, each effort has made an impactful difference in finding a cure. So, from the bottom of our hearts, thank you.
