Covenant Shores hosted its third annual Making Strides Against Breast Cancer rally and walk on Sept. 29 and 30.

Representatives from the American Cancer Society (ACS) were on campus to share the latest research updates, and then residents did laps around the scenic walking path on the 12-acre campus to raise money for ACS, with a goal of $5,000.
