Making Strides Against Breast Cancer

Educators will be stepping out again this fall for the annual Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walks to raise funds for the American Cancer Society, with NYSUT continuing its pivotal role as a flagship sponsor. Last year, NYSUT members generated more than $722,270 in donations for ACS. Money raised via the Making Strides walks is earmarked for research, education and support services.

Why We are Making Strides

Our teams participate in Making Strides Against Breast Cancer events across the country and we've taken our leadership in the fight against breast cancer to the next level by joining the Making Strides National Partners Program. We are thrilled about the difference that our members and their families are making to help eliminate breast cancer as a life-threatening disease. NYSUT has been a flagship sponsor of the American Cancer Society event since 2002, and the efforts of the union and its members have generated support, energy, awareness, volunteers and more than $12 million during that time to fight the disease with research, information, services and access to mammograms for women who need them.
