Making Strides – A Video Recap

We wanted to share this video by Ninja Cat Productions, of the 2012 Making Strides Against Breast Cancer of Kansas City event.  The excitement, the walkers, and the amount of money brought in by our participants amazes us every day! We are so honored to have such a great community force with us as we fight back against breast cancer.  Thank you to all of you who walked, donated, and spread the word about our event.  We can’t wait to see you next year – we’re we’ll do it all over again!
