“Sista Strut,” an annual 3K charity walk for breast cancer support and awareness, is returning to Indianapolis for a second year.

iHeartMedia Indianapolis debuted the nationwide charity walk for men and women of color in the Hoosier state in October 2022 in partnership with Real 98.3 The Nap’s Number 1 Hip Hop ‘n R&B. The return of “Sista Strut” was announced through iHeartMedia Indianapolis on July 27 and is scheduled to take place during Breast Cancer Awareness Month on Saturday, Oct. 21.

“Last year was spectacular,” iHeart Indianapolis VP Sales Leon Williamson said in a statement. “We expect twice the attendance and support this year!”

Last year’s “Sista Strut” featured live performances, guest speakers and giveaways in addition to fellowship and community connections through a “survivors lounge.” This year aims to be no different, as the event aims to continue celebrating the “strength and resilience of men and women of color while honoring those who have fought or are currently fighting” the battle against breast cancer.

Participants are encouraged to walk, dance and laugh their way through Victory Field Stadium as they raise funds for breast cancer research, of which a portion of the proceeds go to benefit the Cancer Support Community of Indianapolis.

In addition to hosting “Sista Strut,” Real 98.3 will also premier a new film entitled “Just Wait,” which documents Indianapolis’ first “Sista Strut” through the lens of breast cancer survivor Jessica Johnson. “Just Wait” is directed by Indianapolis filmmaker Ira Mallory and will premiere at the Madam Walker Legacy Center on Sept. 2.

The second annual “Sista Strut” breast cancer awareness walk will take place Oct. 21 from 10 – a.m. to 1 p.m. at Victory Field in Downtown Indianapolis, 501 W. Maryland St. Registration for the walk can be found on Eventbrite at indystrut.com. For more information about “Sista Strut,” contact Leon Williamson at leonwilliamson@iheartmedia.com.
