Sista Strut

Sista Strut is a 3K walk/race to heighten awareness about the issues of breast cancer in women of color, as well as provide information on community resources.

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. 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 twice that of 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 US 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.
