Mid-America Province Making Strides Against Breast Cancer

Over the past few weeks the Chapters in Mid-America Province teamed up in support of the American Cancer Society.
Making Strides Against Breast Cancer is an event hosted by the American Cancer Society to raise awareness and funds to end breast cancer. The noncompetitive three- to five- mile walks unite nearly 300 communities as the largest network of breast cancer events in the nation. Making Strides is determined to finish the fight against breast cancer by helping people take steps to reduce their risk and find it early when it is most treatable. Funds raised enable the American Cancer Society to support groundbreaking breast cancer research as well as provides assistance for breast cancer patients.
Mid-America Province put their 99 hands together to fundraise for this great cause. The penny wars at the Fall Conclave promoted friendly competition among the chapters to raise the most funds for the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer 5k. The chapters were challenged to make creative jars and collect as much change as possible. Epsilon Rho Chapter had the best design with their Haunted House Penny Jar while Epsilon Omega won the competition by collecting over $800 to support the American Cancer Society. The fundraising continued after Conclave with Mid-America Province raising almost $2000 between the Illinois and Missouri Making Strides Team Pages.
On top of providing support for this great cause the Brothers of Mid-America Province attended the Making Strides Walks in Chicago, IL and St. Louis, MO. Special shout out to Brothers Jessie Merlo, Matt Fiscella, Candy NG, Julie Do, Ina Liko, Prital Patel, Therese Quijano, Antonio Rodriguez, Hanna Lee, Ben Nagy, Elmor Pineda, Lauren Cunico, Patrice Davis, Adrian Maria Hollis, Anthony Valdes, Mark Abadines, Dan Dickson, Jasmine Syeda, Keith Riley Meg Olson, Brandon Webb, Michael Hildebrandt, CeCe Nguyen, Anna Gracheva, Brian Bergquist, Gerry Lagua, Genie Herrera, Dave Hoang, Ben Hung, Anmin Wang, Ridge Lin, Rachel Kapadia, Tuyen Pham, Kenneth Brian Capulong, Eric Saucedo, Connor Perkins, Jackie Nissen, Nick Kim, Carmen Stach, Dr. Anastasia Armbuster, and Becca Mousseau for coming out to the walk!
