BioPlus Specialty Pharmacy was thrilled to step up and sponsor the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer event this year on October 26, 2019 at Lake Eola Park, Orlando. In addition to the BioPlus team walking the route, BioPlus held several pre-walk day fundraisers to get the fundraising off on the right foot.
The American Cancer Society first introduced the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer fundraiser in 1993. Since then, more than 13 million walkers across the United States have raised more than $810 million towards breast cancer awareness, prevention, and treatment.
BioPlus Specialty Pharmacy was proud to sponsor this year’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Fundraiser Walk of Orlando, which is a noncompetitive 3- or 5-mile walk. The funds raised at the Making Strides events will go toward innovative research, providing free information and support, and helping people reduce their breast cancer risk or find it early when it’s most treatable.
By the time the last walker crossed the finish line, BioPlus raised more than $11,000 for the American Cancer Society. BioPlus has received outstanding support in the form of volunteers and donations from its own employees. BioPlus has an ongoing commitment to a variety of causes which promote better treatments and cures for complex diseases. As a specialty pharmacy caring for cancer patients and supporting oncology prescribers, supporting breast cancer research and cancer patients aligns with our values. Next year, let’s make this event even bigger and more successful!
