Sista Strut Philadelphia
What is Sista Strut?
iHeartMedia Philadelphia will host the 4th annual Sista Strut Breast Cancer walk on October 17, 2020 – virtually!
Sista Strut’s mission is to help raise money and awareness for breast cancer, specifically how it affects the African American community.
Listeners in PA, Jersey, and Delaware will be encouraged to walk in their neighborhoods with their friends/families/pods, showing their support for their sisters who are enduring the unthinkable. Even a pandemic can’t STOP THE STRUT! Registration includes a Sista Strut Swag Bag! The Swag Bag is a pink fanny pack stuffed with your virtual walk essentials.
Swag bag pickup will be on Friday, October 16th, from 3pm-6pm, at iHeartMedia Philadelphia Offices (111 Presidential Blvd, Bala Cynwyd, PA 19004). All registered walkers will receive the same swag bag. Unfortunately we are unable to mail bags. You may pick up for multiple people - please have a copy of the confirmation number of any additional people you are picking up for so that there is no confusion. Sizes are requested and we will try our best to fulfill all requests, but due to increased registration we have had to estimate sizes to get shirts in time.
Studies show that African American women are more likely to get breast cancer at a younger age and have a death rate from breast cancer higher than Caucasian women of the same age. Sista Strut recognizes the strength of survivors, their family and friends, heightens awareness, promotes early detection and the search for a cure.

- African American women in the U.S. have a 41% higher death rate from breast cancer than white women.
- African American women are more likely than white women to be diagnosed with breast cancer before age 40 and are more likely to be diagnosed with larger tumors.
