Corpus Christi Law Firm Has Long Record of Community Support
CORPUS CHRISTI, TX, October 11, 2018 /24-7PressRelease/ — Herrman & Herrman, P.L.L.C. is pleased to be a sponsor of the 10th annual Making Strides Against Breast Cancer fundraiser walk scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 20 in Corpus Christi.
The uplifting event is a non-competitive 5K walk at Bayfront Park to bring people together who have been touched by breast cancer. It is a celebration of life and community in the Coastal Bend with live music, food trucks and other family activities. The American Cancer Society relies on Making Strides events to raise money for innovative breast cancer research and support services and to provide information to help people reduce their cancer risk.
The event has grown from several thousand participants 10 years ago to more than 15,000 people expected to turn out at Bayfront Park this year.
Herrman & Herrman is sponsoring the photo booth area at the Making Strides of Corpus Christi event. Participants in the fundraiser walk can get 8 X 10 team photos for a $5 suggested cash or credit/debit card donation. The money raised will go to help fight breast cancer.
Approximately 17,000 new cases of breast cancer are diagnosed each year in Texas, according to the Texas Department of State Health Services. Breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in women.
While there is no sure way to prevent breast cancer, there are proactive steps women can take to reduce their breast cancer risk such as receiving regular screenings and being aware of their risk factors. Doing regular breast self-examinations and getting routine mammograms can detect cancer early when it is most treatable. A woman living in the United States has a one in eight lifetime risk of being diagnosed with breast cancer, according to the American Cancer Society.
The attorneys and staff at Herrman & Herrman care about the community where we live and work and recognize the importance of giving back to the community. The law firm seeks to make a positive difference in the lives of people in Corpus Christi by being a sponsor of community events and providing legal representation to injured people who are struggling to recover from serious accidents caused by others.
The money raised at the Making Strides walks helps save lives and Herrman & Herrman is committed to doing our part as a sponsor.
