In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month this October, Harsch Investment Properties Las Vegas Region created a team, the Hakuna Matatas, to raise funds and awareness for their local American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer chapter. Each year, Making Strides Against Breast Cancer hosts a noncompetitive three to five mile walk that brings people together to make a difference for everyone who has been touched by breast cancer.

“While several members of my family have had experiences with breast cancer, I know and have known many women who have faced this battle, and some that lost, so I asked the Vegas team ‘who wants to walk with me?’” says Kathy Rose, Vice President and Director of Property Management, Harsch Investment Properties Las Vegas Region. “This whole experience is just part of the Harsch culture of giving back and being involved in our community.”

The Hakuna Matatas have 15 members from the Las Vegas office participating in the fundraiser, including family members. The team has raised over $1,500 with the generous support of our business partners, vendors, friends and family. The team is currently ranked 3rd out of 176 teams in the area and there are still 59 days left to continue raising funds for this great cause. In addition to the team’s effort, HarschCares, Harsch Investment Properties’ online employee matching program, will match donations made by employees.

More about this event: The American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk is as unique and special as the stories that motivate our dedicated walkers, donors and volunteers. Each step we take is personal. And each donation is helping to save lives. And each volunteer helps create a world with less breast cancer and more birthdays.

Date of the event: October 29, 2017

Location: Red Rock Casino Resort & Spa, 11011 W. Charleston Blvd, Las Vegas, NV 89135
