Months-long event to fight against breast cancer starts in Maryland

Pink Ribbon Classic at the Beach will start up in Ocean City, Maryland, this coming Wednesday, according to The Dispatch.

The event, which is put on by the American Cancer Society and has been going on for the past 15 years, will start on August 18 with a golf tournament. There will be eight events during the four month-long series, and all of the proceeds will go to boosting awareness and hope for some positive breast cancer health news, according to the news source.

The biggest event is the 5K Walk/Run that occurs on October 15, which asks those who run to pay a $25 fee but those who walk can do so free. The Pink Ribbon Classic's main goal is to promote breast cancer screening, as well, as it can save people's lives, the media outlet reports.

According to the American Cancer Society, one in eight women in the U.S. will be diagnosed with breast cancer at some point in their lives. However, the death rates of breast cancer have been decreasing since 1990 due to positive breast cancer breakthroughs news.
