    October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The American Cancer Society and Action News Jax are teaming up to raise awareness and funds across our area. Celebrate with us this weekend.  

    Join Action News Jax anchor Dawn Lopez at the annual Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk on Oct. 13. The event is a celebration and fundraiser for the fight against breast cancer. There are two walks going on in our area: Making Strides of Jacksonville at TIAA Bank and Making Strides of Orange Park at Moosehaven. 

    A sea of pink will join together to celebrate our survivors and remember the lives that have been lost to breast cancer. There will be special ceremony and breakfast for survivors to attend. 

    Action News Jax will be at Making Strides of Jacksonville. Stop by the Action News Jax Family Focus booth to pick up some pink gear before the walk. Action News Jax anchor Dawn Lopez will be the master of ceremonies, leading workouts and announcing other festivities throughout the morning.
