Making Strides Against Breast Cancer

For 13 years, Blue Cross and Blue Shield of New Mexico (BCBSNM) has been a flagship sponsor of the American Cancer Society’s annual fundraising walk, Making Strides Against Breast Cancer, to raise awareness of breast cancer in New Mexico. Each spring, employees spend four weeks fundraising and building a team for the walk. In 2013, BCBSNM hosted a two-hour exercise-a-thon for employees and community members to raise funds for the walk. In total, BCBSNM employees raised $26,000 for the event.
