Eastern Campus to Host American Cancer Society’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk – Sunday, October 22, 2017

Suffolk County Community College  October 13, 2017

TO:                  The College Community

FROM:           Dr. Sylvia A. Diaz, Foundation Executive Director

Suffolk County Community College, the Suffolk Community College Foundation and the American Cancer Society are working together to bring breast cancer awareness to the Long Island community.  On Sunday, October 22nd, the College’s Eastern Campus will be the host site for one of the two major American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walks (registration at 7:30 a.m./walk starts at 8:30 a.m.) taking place this fall.  We anticipate that on that day thousands of individuals will walk around Ring Road and unite as a community to raise awareness about the steps that can be taken to reduce the risk of getting breast cancer.  For the second year in a row, we are proud to serve as a Flagship Sponsor for this event.

Last year through this partnership, the Foundation established the “Breast Cancer Survivor’s and Caregiver’s Scholarship.” This scholarship is awarded to a Suffolk student who is a survivor or has been a caregiver to someone impacted by breast cancer.

When communities participate in Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walks they are helping those currently fighting the disease, those who may have to fight it one day, and those who will avoid a diagnosis due to education and risk reduction.  When it comes to breast cancer, no one should walk alone.  We encourage our college community members to form a team, join a team, walk as an individual or bring a friend to the Eastern Campus. For more information or details about registering please contact Russell Malbrough at the College’s Foundation at 631-451-4630.

By joining together, we can make a difference in our community.
