Join us on Saturday, September 15, 2018 at Memorial Park for the Inaugural Cracker Barrel Sista Strut 3K Breast Cancer Walk. The rally starts at 7 a.m. and the 3K walk begins at 9 a.m.. The Cracker Barrel Sista Strut aims to heighten awareness about the issues of breast cancer in women of color, as well as provide information on community resources. Studies show that African American women are more likely to get breast cancer at a younger age and have a death rate from breast cancer twice that of Caucasian women of the same age. Sista Strut recognizes the strength of survivors, their family and friends, heightens awareness, promotes early detection and the search for a cure. Did you know? African American women in the U.S. have a 41 percent higher death rate from breast cancer than white women. African American women are more likely than white women to be diagnosed with breast cancer before age 40 and are more likely to be diagnosed with larger tumors. Awareness of these issues will help survival rates with earlier diagnoses. [Organizer's description]
