9-30-18: Making Strides for Breast Cancer Oct 20, Gas Works Park, Research www.cancer.org

Making Strides for Breast Cancer is on the calendar for Saturday, October 20 at Gas Works Park. Emily Vega is coordinating the event and encourages us to come out as team, or individually, but come out to support and learn more about the Research happening in the Puget Sound area. Genie is a breast cancer Survivor and expresses her gratitude for the Research that made it possible to detect the breast cancer she had and provide Genetic Counseling. In addition, the funds provide various kinds of education, support groups, rides to appointments. Kim Arent has coordinated the Cancer vs. Construction event happening Sunday September 30, 11am-2pm, in Maple Valley. It supports things associated with childhood cancers, and the event gives kids a chance to come out and play on those big Cats and earth moves, etc. used in construction. Cost is $15/child, but adults get in Free! The fundraising has had a major impact for Research locally and across the country! www.cancer.org

Sunday Morning Magazine is a local Seattle podcast featuring guests from local non-profit agencies, authors and specialists in the fields that are the focus of each weekend’s informative conversation. These focus areas include education, environment, charities, crime, health, domestic issues, and youth.
