Cassidy McLellan – Mustangs Ahead
(LAKEWOOD RANCH, FL) – On Saturday Mustangs volunteered at the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer of Sarasota Manatee Walk at Nathan Benderson’s Park.
The LRHS Student Government Association (SGA), Key Club, and Silver Stars volunteered at this event.
SGA member junior Brooke Morgan said, “It was very fun. I was surrounded by my friends and we were very fortunate to have the opportunity to support this organization.”
Making Strides is an organization that raises money to help fund the American Cancer Society’s (ACS) breast cancer research. They also help provide services like free rides to chemo, free places to stay near chemo treatment, and a cancer helpline.
The Making Strides website stated, “The American Cancer Society started Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walks to unite communities in the fight against this deadly disease. Today, Making Strides is the largest network of breast cancer events in the nation – and we do more than just walk.”
Morgan continued, “I helped by assembling the (decorative) pin wheels and bringing my support to all the walkers and survivors. A lot of the volunteers also waited at the end of the walk and congratulated everyone when they finished.”
