MELBOURNE, FLA.—Pink bra-clad ladies (and gentlemen) went out in public Saturday, Oct. 20, for the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk sponsored by the American Cancer Society. Florida Institute of Technology’s Women’s Business Center (WBC) teamed with the Rotary Club of Indialantic to raise more than $7,000 through the 3.2-mile walk, which took place at Space Coast Stadium in Viera. Captain of the joint Team Courage Heart and Soul was WBC Director Beth Gitlin, a one-year breast cancer survivor.
“This was a celebration of survivorship. It was an occasion to express hope and our shared goal to end a disease that threatens the lives of so many people we love,” said Gitlin.
