PARSIPPANY — The early morning light rain didn’t stop the The American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk held at the Mack-Cali Campus.

The walk raises awareness and funds to save lives from breast cancer. Each event is a noncompetitive 3 to 5 mile walk that brings people together to make a difference for everyone who has been touched by breast cancer. The events raise money to fund innovative research, provide free information and support, and to help people reduce their breast cancer risk or find it early when it’s most treatable.
