Albany, NY – The Sage Colleges' Student Athlete Advisory Committee (S.A.A.A.C.) will be participating in the 2017 Making Strides Breast Cancer Walk on October 15 at Washington Park in Albany. Registration for the walk is at 10 a.m. and the walk kicks off at noon.
The American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walks raises awareness and funds to save lives from breast cancer! Each event is a noncompetitive 3 to 5 mile walk that brings people together to make a difference for everyone who has been touched by breast cancer. The events also raise money to fund innovative research, provide free information and support, and to help people reduce their breast cancer risk or find it early when it's most treatable.
From the opening ceremony to the post-walk entertainment, a Making Strides event is a celebration of survivors and opportunity to remember loved-ones lost. It's a day that shouldn't be missed and won't be forgotten.
SAAC will be collecting donations at several home events leading up to the walk on October 15 this next month, while several of Sage's student-athletes will also be taking part in the walk as well. Donations can be made at home events or directly on our team page.
