Last October, over 15,000 participants from Westchester County came to Manhattanville College to support the American Cancer Society’s event in the fight against breast cancer. We raised $1,300,000 for breast cancer research, education and services. Hundreds of survivors proudly wore their Pink Survivor Shirts and many loved ones were remembered throughout the day with personal messages on signs and shirts at the walk.
We are making great progress as 1 out of every 2 women reach out to us for support, but there is still so much work to do. You are instrumental to the American Cancer Society mission to eliminate this disease as a life-threatening illness. Hope starts with you!
The success of our event relies on walkers, donations, volunteers and community sponsorships.
