Morris Bart, LLC, is proud to be a sponsor of this year’s Sista Strut 3K Walk in New Orleans, starting in Woldenberg Park at 8 a.m. on March 3. Be there and become aware!
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 greater than that of Caucasian women of the same age. Sista Strut recognizes the strength of survivors and their loved ones, heightens awareness, and promotes early detection and the search for a cure.
