Breast cancer is one of the most misunderstood cancers in the world. It can affect both women and men, and claims the lives of more than 400,000 people every year.
In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month, Troop 1309 wanted to show support for this important cause by volunteering at the 23rd annual Susan G. Komen Phoenix Race for the Cure. The girls helped put ice and bottled water in the back of trucks, passed out water bottles and cheered on participants as they crossed the finish line.
Troop 1309 is learning about the impact breast cancer can have and how building awareness fosters a supportive environment for breast cancer education and research. Way to go, girls!
