For the fourth year, Escalon High school cheerleaders and alumni participated in the recent Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk hosted in Modesto.

“These girls line the streets of this event to cheer on the walkers,” said EHS Cheer coach Jeannie Moeller. “I am so proud to not only educate about and participate in this event, but to witness the joy and emotion that our cheerleaders experience as we watch survivors, caregivers and families walk to raise awareness and keep memories alive.”

At the event, Moeller said cheerleaders, alumni and coaches met a 40 year breast cancer survivor, families that had lost young women and a grandmother who had two chemo treatments done with 10 to go.

“So in October we wear pink,” Moeller noted. “Not just a color to EHS cheer, but a reminder that breast cancer is real, raw, and touches all of us.”
