AIT executives and employees attend Making Strides kickoff breakfast
On Thursday, August 15, 2011, AIT-ORD employees attended the 11th annual Making Strides Against Breast Cancer (MSABC) kick-off breakfast at Cantigny Park in Wheaton, IL.
The event gathered corporate and community leaders, flagship sponsors and survivors to generate excitement and participation for this year's 12th annual MSABC walk taking place on Sunday, October 16, 2011.
Since 2000, AIT has participated in Chicago's annual Making Strides Against Breast Cancer® walk by hosting employee fundraisers, collecting walk pledge donations and walking as a family to contribute over $483,000 to the American Cancer Society's annual event.
As a flagship event sponsor, AIT partners with the ACS to share the organization's mission to eliminate breast cancer and create a world with more celebrated birthdays.
The Chicago area Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walks are among the more than 250 events being held across the country this year. More than 30,000 participants are expected at the 16 walks scheduled at locations throughout Illinois in October, which is expected to raise $2.8 million for the fight against breast cancer.
