The American Cancer Society of Oklahoma is hosting its annual Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walks'.

Organizers say the two 5k walks will be held today, one in Oklahoma City and the other in Tulsa.

The annual walk unites communities, honors those touched by the disease, and raises awareness and funds for a world without breast cancer, officials say.

Officials say the money raised will benefit breast cancer research, programs, and services.

Bob Mallam is one of this year's "Portraits of Hope," a small group of Oklahoma cancer survivors who are creating awareness and raising funds in the fight against breast cancer, officials say.

Officials say Mallam is one of those guys who has never met a stranger.

He's the kind of man who smiles in the face of adversity, and that's just what he did a few years ago when he learned he had breast cancer.

"I hope everyone who has been touched by cancer will join us," Mallam said. "So many people have either had cancer or have a family member or friend who has been diagnosed. It's so important to keep fighting for a cure, and I know together we can accomplish miracles."

The Oklahoma City's walk will be located at the Wheeler District, 1701 S. Western, and Tulsa's will held at Mohawk Park, 6421 E. 36th St. N.

Registration for both events begin at 7 a.m., and the walks start at 8 a.m.
