I’ve written about the amazing work the Breast Cancer Network does in our community. (PREVIOUS STORY)   The non-profit, founded by a group of breast cancer survivors, has been around for nearly 30 years. Their mission is to help support and educate survivors and their families. Run mainly by volunteers, the BCN of WNY is hoping to put themselves out of business – by helping to raise funds that can be donated to metastatic breast cancer research, in order to be part of the solution.

The thing about making a difference is that you can’t really do it alone. It takes a community. It takes fundraising. And this is a good one. A great way to have fun, make a difference, and celebrate the survivors while remembering those we lost.

The Breast Cancer Network is sponsoring its first annual “Strike Out Breast Cancer Walk & Ballgame”. Talk about a great time – for a great cause. Here are the details:

Saturday July 29, 2017.

The event starts with a pre-game party beginning at 3 p.m. in the parking lot of WNY Imaging Group located at 222 Genesee Street. The pre-game party will be followed by a one mile awareness walk to Coco Cola Field, and walkers can enjoy that evening’s Buffalo Bisons baseball game. All breast cancer survivors will receive a free ticket to the game courtesy of the Buffalo Bisons!

You can register, make a donation, volunteer for the event, or become a sponsor for the event.

The 2017 “Strike Out Breast Cancer Walk” in support of the Breast Cancer Network of WNY and breast cancer patients and survivors of Western New York and anyone who has been impacted by breast cancer.
