Walk with UUP, NYSUT to help fight breast cancer


uupdate 9-14-15

It’s time to make plans to make strides against breast cancer.

UUP is encouraging its members to take part in the American Cancer Society's Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walks in October; the walks will be held at 19 locations across the state.

This fall, hundreds of UUPers are expected to join thousands of NYSUT members in Making Strides walks.

"We always have a big presence at Making Strides walks, and we hope to repeat that this year,” said UUP Secretary Eileen Landy. "Making Strides offers an important opportunity to help defeat breast cancer."

UUP, participating with NYSUT—a flagship sponsor of Making Strides walks—has helped raise more than $11.5 million since 2002 to fight the diseases through research, services for cancer patients and by providing mammograms for women who need them.

The NYSUT Making Strides Web page has a list of Making Strides walks; you can also register to take part in one of the events.
