SISTA STRUT MEMPHIS
JUNE 5th, 2021 at 10AM
Due to the ongoing concerns with Covid-19, we have an alternate plan for our event this year. In an effort to keep everyone's safety as our top priority and to ensure proper social distancing, we are planning a drive through parade. Everyone that registers will still receive the Official Sista Strut T-Shirt, the Sista Strut backpack, Official participant walk number that you will display on your car dash board, and all the great sponsor giveaways!
We encourage everyone to decorate their cars and break out those pink wigs! At no time is anyone allowed to get out of their vehicles for any reason. Participants must stay inside their cars for the duration of the drive through event.
What is Sista Strut?
Sista Strut aims to heighten awareness about the issues of breast cancer in women of color, as well as provide information on community resources. 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.
Did you know?
- 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.
- Awareness of these issues will help survival rates with earlier diagnoses.
