One Step at a Time

WCTA HOSA participated in the Making Strides Breast Cancer Walk on Sunday, October 30, at Downtown Summerlin, hosted by the American Cancer Society. The walk began at 8:30 a.m., lasting to around 10:30 a.m. Around 28,000 walkers attended the walk, WCTA HOSA included.

The American Cancer Society is an organization based in Atlanta, Georgia. The goal for the American Cancer Society is to try to eliminate cancer from the world. They strive for cures and help people currently fighting the disease fight back.

The route began at the back entrance of Red Rock Hotel and Casino. It then lead them through the roads of Downtown Summerlin and then looping through South Pavilion Center Drive. The walk ended where it started.

Over 30 WCTA HOSA members attended with smiles on their faces, knowing what they were doing was for a great cause that affects over millions of people around the globe.

A variety of people joined the walk, including pets. Many families showed up with pictures of loved ones who passed away due to breast cancer. Some people showed up just for a good workout. And there were also some extravagant people who showed up in playful costumes such as an inflatable Rocky Balboa and colorful and decorated bras.

There was also an array of tents selling different types of merchandise to raise money for the cause. The items included t-shirts, sunglasses, and even hip scarves.

The event also included a concert stage where they blasted today’s current hits. Additionally, there were multiple spots for photo ops including an Instagram board and a gigantic inflatable couch.

At the end of the day, everyone had one thing in common: to stop Breast Cancer. WCTA HOSA and others were happy to join the fight against it and hopefully find a cure in the future.
