American Cancer Society

announces ‘Breast Cancer’ walk

CENTRAL VALLEY – The American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walks will occur on Oct. 20, at Manhattanville College in Westchester and at Woodbury Commons Premium Outlets in the Lower Hudson Valley, uniting communities to honor those touched by the disease and raise awareness and funds for a world without breast cancer.

Making Strides Against Breast Cancer is the largest network of breast cancer awareness events in the nation. The noncompetitive, inspirational event raises awareness and funds to end breast cancer and provide hope to ensure no one faces breast cancer alone.

Dollars raised help the American Cancer Society fund innovative breast cancer research; provide education and guidance to help people reduce their risk; and offer comprehensive patient support to those who need it most.
