WASHINGTON, DC (September 17) LAWFUEL – Kilpatrick Stockton, a flagship sponsor of the Washington, DC Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk, announced today that it will be hosting an invitation-only reception October 1 to honor the American Cancer Society (ACS) and the large contingency of Kilpatrick Stockton team members who will be participating in the walk. Kilpatrick Stockton will have volunteers present to register reception attendees — which will include firm staff, attorneys, clients and friends of the firm — for the walk.
This year, the fifth annual walk will be held October 19 at 10AM on the National Mall. Registration begins at 9AM near the Washington Monument. Making Strides Against Breast Cancer is the American Cancer Society’s premier event to raise awareness and dollars to fight breast cancer.
“This reception will begin to focus people’s attention and energy toward making this important walk a success,” said Chris Gattuso, Partner, Washington, DC office of Kilpatrick Stockton. “As a flagship sponsor, Kilpatrick Stockton fully supports the efforts of ACS and encourages everyone in the DC area to participate in Making Strides Against Breast Cancer. For many of us at Kilpatrick Stockton, this isn’t just about good corporate citizenship; it is personal. Many of us have had to cope with the devastating impact of breast cancer on our families and friends and we want the opportunity to give back. Together, we can help make a difference in the fight against breast cancer.”
In 2007, nearly 500,000 walkers in 130 communities across the country joined the American Cancer Society in its united fight against breast cancer. More than $50 million was raised through Making Strides events.
