By raising funds and awareness for the Edith Sanford Breast Foundation, supporters across the region made a serious impact so far this Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
The month kicked off with the Herberger’s Cut-a-Thon on Oct.8. All afternoon, the salon pampered clients while donating a portion of proceeds to Edith Sanford.
On Oct. 14, walkers and runners united on a crisp morning for the Fargo Mini 10K, sponsored by Edith Sanford Breast Center, at the Fargo Marathon. Many of the participants, like Jenna Meyers, went above and beyond for the cause by racing and raising funds for TeamEdith.
Meyers and some friends walked the 10K in memory of her mother, Carol Prien, who passed away from breast cancer this summer.
“We decided that since my mom’s journey with breast cancer was a little over six years and this is a little over six miles, every mile is going to represent a year of that journey,” Meyers said in a Facebook live video during the event.
Finally, one of the best parts of October has been the food! Restaurants have teamed up with Edith Sanford to give customers delicious deals that help support the cause. We can’t say thank you enough to Uncle Maddio’s, Blarney Stone Pub, Spicy Pie Pizza and Sandy’s Donuts.
Thank you to everyone who has helped raise funds for the Edith Sanford Breast Foundation. Every dollar is helping support lifesaving research and patient care right here in the Fargo region. But remember, the month’s not over yet!
