BIRMINGHAM — Brenda’s Brown Bosom Buddies will host its 10th Annual “Sistah Strut” on Saturday, Sept. 25, at Legion Field, from 7-11 a.m. People can also participate virtually, by walking on their own or even staying home.
The event is designed to celebrate Breast Cancer Survivors, promote Breast Cancer screening, and raise money that provides free mammograms for uninsured, low-income women and men.
“Sistah Strut brings kindred spirits together to share our life experiences and to address the needs of our community as it relates to Breast Cancer,” Brenda Phillips-Hong, the Founder and Executive Director of Brenda’s Brown Bosom Buddies said. “Even in the midst of a pandemic, people are still being struck down by Breast Cancer, and early detection is as important as ever. Supporting this event is a way to ensure that uninsured women get mammograms and get the treatment they need.”
Brenda’s Brown Bosom Buddies is a 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to supporting people with Breast Cancer and providing education and promoting early detection of Breast Cancer in minority, low-income, and underserved communities. The organization works with local healthcare providers to cover mammogram costs for women and men, and it assists with transportation to local Treatment Centers for those diagnosed with Breast Cancer. Light Housekeeping is also provided for those recently diagnosed and currently undergoing treatment.
While the event is FREE and Open to the Public, registered participant tickets for adults are $30 in advance or $35 Day Of and On-Site. Tickets for children under 12 are $10.00.
