On Saturday, October 17, the Chakra family walked as a team in the America Cancer Society’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk held at Canalside.

We celebrate the survivors and honor those that we have lost, while raising breast cancer awareness. We are also continuing to raise funds toward research for the advancement of prevention, screening and treatments for breast cancer.

In 2014, over 290,000 new cases of breast cancer were diagnosed and 40,000 of our friends and family succumbed to this disease. Only lung cancer accounts for more cancer deaths in women in the US. Most, if not all of us, know someone who has been affected by this disease. Events like Making Strides Against Breast Cancer utilize donations for cutting-edge breast cancer research to better understand, prevent, diagnose, treat, and cure the disease; to support breast cancer patients in need; and to make mammograms accessible to those who need them.

Throughout the month of October, we at Chakra will be Thinking Pink and doing our very best to raise breast cancer awareness. And for every dollar raised by members of the Chakra team, Chakra Communications will match the donation up to $1,000. You can still act now, visit our site and contribute to the cause!
