Colliers International | Pittsburgh employees walked to end breast cancer Saturday, October 12th as third-time participants of the American Cancer Society’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer 5k. The scenic walk started in front of Stage AE and looped around to the North Shore trail along the Allegheny River. The Colliers International | Pittsburgh team raised over $1,300 for breast cancer prevention, recovery and research.
Jessica Jarosz, Vice President of Tenant Advisory Services at Colliers International | Pittsburgh, led the Colliers International | Pittsburgh team and encouraged employees to participate.
“As the team leader for our company in its third consecutive year participating in the Making Strides for Breast Cancer 5K walk, I am gratified to state that we raised over $1,300 to help support the fight against breast cancer,” Jarosz said. “Together we can make a difference, and I truly believe that saving lives starts with one team, one walker and one dollar at a time.”
The Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk started in 1993 after one cancer survivor wanted to celebrate her fellow survivors while raising funds and awareness of the disease. This was the fourth year the American Cancer Society hosted the event in Pittsburgh, and according to the Making Strides website, 178 teams donated over $79,000 towards the cause.
