Bealls stores recently announced a month-long, statewide partnership with the American Cancer Society during the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer campaign that runs throughout "Breast Cancer Awareness Month," Oct. 131.

"During the month of October, Bealls will participate in the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer campaign. We could not be more excited to continue this partnership with the American Cancer Society for the fourth straight year. Our customers will have the opportunity to donate to this extremely valuable cause at our Bealls stores," said Matt Beall, senior vice president and chief merchandising officer for Bealls Stores Inc. "We believe that the research and educational tools that exist because of the American Cancer Society are vital towards the fight against cancer, and we urge our customers to join us in this continued fight."

"During our month-long initiative of Making Strides Against Breast Cancer, we rely on our community support through individuals and businesses such as Bealls Stores. They have been supportive throughout their stores, with many local employees participating in the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk events," said Kim Staczek, American Cancer Society Senior Director, Regional Corporate Relations. "Donations allow the American Cancer Society to fund cancer research, provide free information and support, and help people reduce their risk or detect breast cancer early. We'd like to thank Bealls and their customers for helping us in our fight against cancer."
