Here at Luminous Electric, we know it wouldn’t be possible to do what we do without the support of our community who trusts us and allows us to do it. Giving back to that community is woven into the very fabric of our business, and we’re always on the lookout for ways in which we can support great causes and give of ourselves and our time to make the world a better place. One of these causes that’s so close to us is that of breast cancer—a vicious disease that threatens the health and lives of women all around the world.
That’s why we’re extremely proud to be a part of this year’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer—a charity walk and fundraiser which benefits breast cancer research efforts as well as support systems for women and families dealing with the disease. Through this effort, we hope to meet our fundraising goal of $2,500 in charitable contributions to the American Cancer Society.

The event is scheduled to take place on October 19th at Nathan Benderson Park in Sarasota. Check-in for the event will begin at 7:00am and the walk itself will begin promptly at 9am. Entrants may choose one of two distances: a one-mile walk and a 5k. Once the walk is completed, there will be food trucks on-site as well as a number of other fun events for attendees. Breast cancer survivors will also be honored at the event through a Survivor & Thriver Brunch as well as a Survivor & Thriver photo to be taken on the main stage of the event at 8:30am.
About Making Strides Against Breast Cancer
Making Strides Against Breast Cancer is a series of fundraising walks to support and benefit breast cancer programs of the American Cancer Society. The American Cancer Society provides support, resources, and other invaluable help to those who are suffering from cancers, including the more than 250,000 women who are diagnosed with the disease each year. The services they provide include free rides to chemo treatments, places to stay near treatment facilities, and a cancer helpline that’s available 24/7 for those dealing with the disease. Making Strides has grown to become the single largest network of breast cancer events in the entire country, with walks being held in virtually every major metropolitan area across the United States.
