The fourth annual Strides for Survivors will take place Feb. 1 at 10:30 a.m. at the Galloway School in Buckhead.

The 2.7-mile walk around Chastain Park will benefit TurningPoint Breast Cancer Rehabilitation, a Sandy Springs-based nonprofit that provides services for breast cancer patients. Strides for Survivors was founded by sisters Samantha, Lauren and Emilie Scalise to honor their mother, Stephanie, a breast cancer survivor and former TurningPoint patient. The sisters’ grandmother also had breast cancer.

The event will also include face painting, games, chalk art, pre-walk yoga, a silent auction and a raffle. School-age childcare will be available during the walk.
