    WHAT:  This October may look different, but breast cancer hasn’t stopped and neither has the American Cancer Society and its dedicated group of volunteers here in the Panhandle. 
    Join the first ever Making Strides of the Emerald Coast Drive Event on Saturday, Oct. 17, from 9-10 a.m. The route will start in the main entrance of Northwest Florida State College, take you to a festive pink tour around McCracken Way and exit to Cedar Ave N. In keeping with safety guidelines and socially distant protocols, the Society asks that participants do not get out of their car prior, during or after the event.
     
    Participants, survivors and the community are encouraged to decorate their vehicles with team banners and all things pink. T-shirts, signs, window paint, balloons, and more are encouraged to show your pink spirit and your commitment to the fight against breast cancer.
     
    We need your help more than ever as the American Cancer Society has been impacted by COVID-19. Our ability to fund cancer research has been reduced in 2020 — our lowest investment this century if current trends continue. We can’t allow progress to be put on hold because of the pandemic.
     
    Funds raised through the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer movement enables the American Cancer Society to help cancer patients navigate their cancer journey during a pandemic, fund 24/7 helpline (800) 227-2345, and live chat at cancer.org; support research into cancer’s causes, cures and treatments; and promote education to reduce the risk of a diagnosis and to detect cancer as early as possible.
     
    WHEN: October 17, 2020 | Saturday
    Drive event starts at 9:00 AM
     
    WHERE: Northwest Florida State College
    100 E College Blvd, Niceville, FL 32578
