Bohemia, NY --- The Connetquot Teachers Association (CTA) was once again well-represented at the 2014 ‘Making Strides Against Breast Cancer’ Walk at the Brookhaven campus of Dowling College on a beautiful Sunday morning, October 5th. Organized by Joanna Zalewski, teachers, spouses, parents and students representing the CTA were among the estimated 10,000 walkers determined to help in the fight against breast cancer.
CTA President, Mr. Anthony Felicio, Jr., said “I would like to thank Ms. Joanna Zalewski for her efforts in organizing the CTA’s involvement in this very worthy cause. I’d also like to thank those members who participated and supported those efforts.”
Since 1993, more close to 10 million walkers across America have raised almost $550 million to fight breast cancer through these Making Strides Walks. In the past year, over one million walkers across the United States raised close to $70 million in the fight against breast cancer. Funding raised at these national ‘Walks’ is used to invest in cancer research to find, prevent, treat and cure the disease. The organization also provides free information and services to people facing breast cancer, such as transportation, lodging, wigs, support programs and financial assistance.
Felicio praised the efforts of the American Cancer Society, and thanked the Connetquot community for it’s generous support in the fight against breast cancer.
