Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk: Food Town is Joining the Fight

The Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk has become something of a tradition at your Food Town, and for a pretty great reason. With our deep roots in Houston and status as a neighborhood grocery, we’re big on giving back to those around us. We’ve been a proud sponsor of the American Cancer Society’s breast cancer walk for years now, and this year we’d like to invite you to get involved! Here are some things you should know:

What is the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Event?
An annual event that’s been going on for more than 20 years, Making Strides Against Breast Cancer brings people of all ages, walks of life and backgrounds together in the fight against breast cancer. Although there are other ways to take part, it centers around fundraising efforts at places such as your Food Town, and breast cancer walks that take place all over. During these walks, people come together in honor of — or support for — those battling cancer. The goal is to raise awareness and to bring in funds to support research efforts.

Here in Houston, our 2021 breast cancer walk takes place Saturday, November 13, at CityCentre. It’s a morning event that, in addition to the traditional walk, will also feature vendor booths, giveaways, a kids’ zone, survivor parade and all sorts of other offerings. (You can learn more on the event website!) As a presenting partner, you can bet your friends at Food Town will be out there rooting folks on and taking part in the fun!

How Can You Get Involved?
Ready to join Food Town and the American Cancer Society in the fight against breast cancer? We’re glad to have you! There are a number of ways you can make a difference:

  • Make a Donation: Monetary donations are accepted at all 30 Houston-area Food Town locations, and online, too! (And If you donate at your Food Town, your name goes up on display for all to see!) Regardless of how you decide to give, trust that your funds will go to a great cause — cancer research, education and support efforts.
  • Sign Up to Walk: Registration is quick and easy, and you have the option to start a new walking team, join an existing one or even go solo. From there, you can fundraise for a great cause by getting word out to friends, neighbors, family members and others. (Of course, it all culminates on November 13 — the day of the big walk here in Houston!)
  • Dedicate a Tribute: Whether you know someone currently battling cancer, someone who lost their brave fight or someone impacted in some other way, you can make a donation in their name. This is a great way to honor someone special, no matter where they are on their journey. Click here for more information about the tribute process.

Your donations help the American Cancer Society fund research, provide information and support to those impacted by the disease, and make it easier to spot the disease early on. In other words, neighbor, you’re truly saving lives!
