All of the Boston University men's basketball student-athletes along with the student managers participated at the American Cancer Society's Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk on Sunday, Oct. 6, at the Hatch Shell on the Charles River Esplanade.
The Terriers formed their own team and donated financially to the organization after walking with the other participants. Each year, over 200 BU student-athletes take on various responsibilities at the event, which raises more than $3 million annually with over 40,000 walkers participating.
This year, the men's basketball team decided to walk the event and interact with fellow walkers. In years past, they've helped register participants and tracking donations.
Making Strides Against Breast Cancer is the largest network of breast cancer fundraising and awareness events in the nation, uniting nearly 300 communities to finish the fight. For 100 years, the American Cancer Society (ACS) has works to save lives and create a world with less cancer and more birthdays. Together with millions of our supporters worldwide, we're helping people stay well, helping people get well, finding cures, and fighting back against cancer.
