SISTA STRUT is coming back for the 2nd Annual 3K Breast Cancer Walk! Sista Strut raises awareness for breast cancer – specifically in African American women and will be held Saturday, April 2, 2016 at Tiger Lane.
Sista Strut is the largest walk of its kind in the city to support women of color. All of the contributions raised for the excellent charities Sista Strut supports remain here and benefit women in Memphis.
The goal of Sista Strut is to heighten awareness about the issues of breast cancer in women of color, as well as provide information on community resources. Studies show that African American women are more likely to get breast cancer at a younger age and have a death rate from breast cancer twice that of Caucasian women of the same age. Sista Strut recognizes the strength of survivors, their family and friends, heightens awareness, promotes early detection and the search for a cure.
