Cracker Barrel Sista Strut returns to Estabrook Park on Oct. 7

Autumn's cool, crisp weather is the perfect reason to get outdoors and bask in nature's beauty before the chilly holiday season. Participating in a charity walk is a fun, easy and oftentimes educational way to sneak in a workout and support a good cause.

The sixth annual Cracker Barrel Sista Strut will come to Milwaukee's Estabrook Park on Saturday, Oct. 7. Hosted by V100.7, the event aims to bring awareness to the importance of early breast cancer screenings.

Sista Strut encourages participants to learn about the community resources available in Milwaukee to help prevent, detect and screen breast cancer early on. Additionally, the 3K walk aims to educate attendees about the relationship between breast cancer and the African American community. African American women have a 41 percent higher death rate from breast cancer than white women and are more likely to be diagnosed before age 40.

"I have two sisters that are breast cancer survivors because of early detection," says Bailey Coleman, on-air personality at V100.7. "We look forward to an event that will bring awareness to the community resources for women in our area. If we save one life from this event, every effort we put into it will be worth it."

Sista Strut will celebrate breast cancer survivors as well as honor the memory of loved ones. Lyrica Anderson from VH1's hit reality show "Love & Hip Hop Hollywood" will perform live at the event.

The event is free and registration is not required. Festivities begin at 8:45 a.m. at Estabrook Park, 4610 Estabrook Parkway. More information can be found at v100.iheart.com/featured/sista-strut-mke.
