Seminoles participate in Tampa breast cancer walk

TAMPA — About 15 members of the Tampa community joined 26,000 others at the Making Strides Against Cancer walk on Nov. 3 at Raymond James Stadium.

The original Walk was scheduled for Oct. 19, the same day Tropical Storm Nestor hit the area.

Nancy Frank, a 16-year survivor, attended the walk with her family. April Simmons and her family also participated and two of her children, Michael and Azaria, ran a good portion of the 5K course.

The American Cancer Society walk, sponsored by Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tampa, raised more than $800,000 to help support individuals facing breast cancer.

The money will help provide cancer research, patient services such as free rides to chemo, free places to stay near treatment and a 24/7 cancer helpline.
