Cheer on the Courtyard Naples Staff as They Participate in the 2011 Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk

Downtown Naples Hotel's Staff Will Raise Money to Save Lives and End Breast Cancer

NAPLES, FL--(Marketwire - Aug 25, 2011) - The staff at the Courtyard Naples is thinking pink as they join other local teams and individuals in an effort to raise funds for the fight against breast cancer. Proving this stylish Courtyard by Marriott is more than just about hotel rooms in Naples, staff members are collecting sponsorships and will be walking with others throughout the area in the Naples edition of the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk on Saturday, October 29, 2011.

The American Cancer Society's Making Strides Against Breast Cancer is more than just a fund-raising walk, the event, which raised more than $6 million dollars last year in Florida alone, unites communities to celebrate those who have battled cancer and raises awareness about cancer prevention. Using a pink bra as its symbol for hope, funds raised through this event are used by the American Cancer Society to help save lives and create a world with less breast cancer and more birthdays.

Representing a stylish choice among downtown Naples hotels, Team "Pink by Courtyard" will join with hundreds of others to proudly participate in the event which begins at 9 a.m. at The Village on Venetian Bay. With similar walks held annually across Florida and the United States hundreds of millions of dollars have been raised since the program's inception in 1993 and the noncompetitive 5K walk has become one of the many well-recognized fund-raising events of the American Cancer Society.
