WHY WE STRUT
Did you know that African American women have a 41% higher death rate from breast cancer than white women and are more likely to be diagnosed before age 40? Among Hispanic women, breast cancer will be the leading cause of cancer death (16%), followed by cancers of the lung (13%) and colorectum (9%). That needs to change! Get involved with the Sista Strut and make a difference!
The goal of Sista Strut is to heighten awareness about the issues of breast cancer in women of color, as well as provide information on community resources. Sista Strut recognizes the strength of survivors, their family and friends, heightens awareness, promotes early detection and the search for a cure.
A portion of the proceeds to benefit the American Association for Cancer Research
The registration fees for Sista Strut are:
- $20 per individual through 5/16/2022
- $25 per individual through 6/8/2022
Registration Fee this year includes Sista Strut T-shirt. Please note that shirts will be issued in relation to your requested size. While we will do our best to accommodate everyone with the size that fits best, we must try to go by your requested size to try and ensure that everyone receives what they requested.
If you are choosing to pay via Money Order, the above registration fees and dates still stand. You will be able to bring your money order to the event the morning of the walk to receive your tshirt. Please note that we will not be able to release your shirt to you or someone else you designate until we receive your money order.
In preparation for the strut, we have three (3) opportunities for you to pick up your shirts before the walk on Saturday, June 11, 2022! This is also a great opportunity for you to pay if you opted for the Pay Later option – please be sure to make all money orders out to iHeartMedia Philadelphia.
Here are the three opportunities:
- Monday, June 6, 2022: 12pm-7pm
- Wednesday, June 8, 2022: 12pm-7pm
- Thursday, June 9, 2022: 4pm-7pm
Location: outdoors at iHeartMedia Philadelphia Office – 2 Bala Plaza, Suite PL50, Bala Cynwyd, PA 19004. Our new location is right next to Saks Fifth Avenue – please look for the red iHeartRadio tent in the parking lot for us to assist you!
Please note that we are unable to mail shirts – they will need to be picked up either during one of the dates/times listed above, or on the morning of the event.
You may pick up for multiple people – please have a printed or digital copy of the confirmation of who you are picking up for so there is no confusion. Please note if you are planning to pick up for someone that chose the Pay Later option, we will not be able to release their shirt until payment is received.
Shirts sizes are *requested* we will try our best to fulfill all requests, but due to increased registration, we have had to estimate some sizes to get shirts in time.
