Making Strides Against Breast Cancer 2022

This event was hosted by the American Cancer Society.

Our Salish team had a great time at the “Making Strides Against Breast Cancer” Seattle Event on October 22nd! We were honored to be a proud sponsor this year.

Thank you to everyone who came out to support and placed donations for breast cancer research and resources!

Our table held Salish swag, information about our services and providers, and cedar rose pins. Everyone enjoyed the cedar roses! Cedar is a traditional healing medicine for Native Americans and it protects against diseases. We were so happy the people enjoyed the Native American tradition and that we could share it with them. We can’t wait for next year!
