Again this year, The Jim Soda Group of Prudential Palms Realty will be participating in the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer 5K Walk for Sarasota/Manatee Counties on October 24, 2009 at the Sarasota Polo Grounds. Making Strides is the American Cancer Society’s event to raise awareness and funds to fight breast cancer. The Sarasota/Manatee event in 2008 had over 5,000 participants who helped raise $370,000 to help fight breast cancer. This year we are expecting an even bigger event. Making Strides is an opportunity to honor breast cancer survivors especially our colleague, Realtor Beth Barnett.  As well as educate women about breast cancer prevention, early detection, awareness, and will raise funds to help achieve a day when no one will have to hear the words “You have breast cancer.”  The walk is on October 24th and starts at 9:00am, with registration opening at 7:30am. Please contact me or any member of the Jim Soda Group if you have any further questions or need more information. Thank you in advance for supporting the fight against breast cancer.  We hope to see you there!
