Teen's birthday makes strides against breast cancer oh-so sweet

 
Last week, Autumn Carter of Fenton, Mo., turned 16. She didn’t throw a blowout bash to celebrate though. Instead, the birthday girl laced up her sneaks, grabbed her sweeties and raised money for breast cancer.

 

According to Patch.com, Autumn walked in the American Cancer Society’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk on Oct. 15 in honor of her grandmother, who was diagnosed with breast cancer several years ago. Alongside her friends, she collected donations on behalf of team Teens for TaTas.

 

The night before the big day, the girls had a sleepover at Autumn’s house. Their big activity? Decorating team T-shirts for the walk.

 

We’re loving Autumn’s selfless birthday celebration and urge you to follow her lead. Though October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, we want you to pick a cause of your choice, find a walk or other fundraising effort nearby and do your best to make a change in this world of ours.
