MICR in the Community
Philadelphia Sista Strut 3K Breast Cancer Walk
Each year, MICR has the pleasure of participating in the Philadelphia Sista Strut! This event features a 3K walk with the goal of increasing public awareness about the impact of breast cancer in women of color. In 2019 MICR was proud to take part in the event for the third year.
AACR members, survivors, advocates, health professionals and the community-at-large united in support during this half-day of health advocacy, cancer education, and community engagement. We were very proud to have AACR-MICR member, Dr. Camille C.R. Ragin, address attendees with information on cancer and preventative measures. Ms. Kim Hall-Jackson gave inspirational remarks on her journey as a cancer survivor. We invite you to visit the AACR booth to learn more about the AACR and MICR and to post your message in our Survivor’s Lounge.
As a global leader in the fight against cancer, the AACR understands the importance of heightening cancer awareness in the community, and we are so pleased to be part of this event. Proceeds from this event continue to benefit MICR programs that support breast cancer research for minorities and other diversity initiatives. We hope that you will be able to join us for this exciting event in coming years!
