Lace up and join Merrimack County Savings Bank (The Merrimack) in Making Strides Against Breast Cancer on Sunday, October 15th at Memorial Field in Concord. This is The Merrimack’s 8th year returning as the Survivorship Sponsor of Survivor Place, totaling more than $80,000 in donations over the years. Survivor Place is a special tent that provides all survivors and thrivers an inviting area to experience the strength of uniting with others who have faced similar challenges.
“Making Strides is more than a walk for us, it’s a movement to end breast cancer and we’re happy to support this fight in any small way we can,” said Linda Lorden, President of The Merrimack. “It’s truly inspirational to see New Hampshire come together in waves of pink to honor loved ones who have been affected by breast cancer.”
New to this year’s event is the addition of the Tribute Garden, a special display to show the love and support for the men and women who courageously stood up to breast cancer. When a pink pinwheel is purchased in tribute, it’s added to the designated garden space at Memorial Field on event day.
“We’re extremely grateful for The Merrimack’s generosity year after year,” said Kathi Russ, Volunteer Director of Sponsorship at the American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer of New Hampshire. “This collective effort not only helps to fund research, it also provides patients with access to quality care and the support they need during their journey.”
Each year, Making Strides attracts thousands of walkers and raises about $500,000 for the American Cancer Society. For more information, registration, or to make a donation, visit the event page.
