Making Strides Against Breast Cancer
George Hutchinson, Project Lead
The American Cancer Society has been saving lives for 100 years. Today, we are supporting The American Cancer Society in its effort to save more than 400 lives a day that would otherwise be lost to cancer. And we won’t stop until we finish the fight. 500 Men Making a Difference leverages the volunteer service of men and women in the New York community to walk in the American Cancer Society’s annual event Making Strides Against Breast Cancer. We are proud to be one of the men’s organizations with a team that walks every year and raises money in support of our sisters, mothers, daughters, aunts, nieces, wives, cousins and friends.
