There was a sea of pink at Orchard Beach for this year’s 15th annual Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk. Hosted by the American Cancer Society and first-time national presenting sponsor Avon, many teams and participants embarked on a nearly 3.1 mile walk on Sunday, October 21 at the Bronx Riviera to raise awareness and fund research for breast cancer.

St. Theresa School cheerleaders joined many others in walking for a cure!
