A Step in the Right Direction

October is National Breast Cancer month and BPL wants you to join us as we stomp out Breast Cancer.

On Sunday October 19, 2008 join the BPL team and New Yorkers everywhere at Prospect Park as we walk for a cure. Making Strides Against Breast Cancer is a noncompetitive walk that takes place in 120 communities across the country. From Arizona to Maine and Washington to Florida, Making Strides walkers unite to honor breast cancer survivors and to educate women about early detection and prevention. And of course, by raising money to support the American Cancer Society fight against breast cancer, we help fund groundbreaking research, public awareness campaigns, efforts to ensure all women have access to mammograms, and free programs and services that improve the quality of life for patients and their families.

In our lifetime we will all know someone that is affected or will be affected by Breast Cancer.  Join the BPL team or sponsor your own. One step at a time is all it takes.
