20 Years Of Making Strides
May 2, 2013
40,000 people joined MAGIC 106.7’s Candy O’Terry and her “Think Pink” team to celebrate the 20th Anniversary of the American Cancer Society’s “Making Strides Against Breast Cancer” walk at the DCR Hatch Shell on Boston’s Charles River last October.
For the 10th consecutive year, MAGIC 106.7 was the radio partner for the noncompetitive, 5 mile fundraising walk which raised $3 million dollars to help in the fight against breast cancer. Making Strides in Boston is the nation’s oldest and largest one-day breast cancer walk, raising $52 million for the fight to end breast cancer since its inception in 1983.
MAGIC 106.7’s Candy O’Terry hosted stage duties with local news anchors Kim Khazei and Reid Lamberty from 7 NBC and even found time to recruit her own “Think Pink Team” of 43 walkers and complete the walk with them to raise close to $5,000 for Making Strides.
