On News 12 there was a segment called: Raise money for breast cancer awareness with Think Pink products. There are great products you can purchase that proceeds go straight to Breast Cancer Research.
“This is not only a month of remembering, but also educating everyone about breast cancer. Women are encouraged to get a breast cancer screening at one of many locations on Long Island. Not only are women affected by breast cancer, but men are too and included in celebration of their survival and mourning those who have not.”
So lace up those shoes and get walking/running for the cause!
