Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk
Each year the Minneapolis-St. Paul Alumnae Chapter participates in the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk to support the mission to end breast cancer. All of us have experienced the loss of a family member, friend, work colleague or soror due to breast cancer. This is an opportunity to remember them and also to celebrate many survivors, including those in our chapter. The Minneapolis-St. Paul Alumnae – Delta Sigma Theta team goal is $1,000 annually.
Other Physical and Mental Health initiatives include GO RED Day in cooperation with the American Heart Association and participation in the March of Dimes Walk for Babies.
