Breast Cancer Network Announces Strike Out Breast Cancer Walk

The Breast Cancer Network of WNY (BCN) is sponsoring its first annual “Strike Out Breast Cancer Walk & Ballgame” on Saturday, July 29, 2017. The event will starts with pre-game party which will begin at 3:30 PM in the parking lot of WNY Imaging Group located at 144 Genesee St. The pre-game party will be followed by a one mile awareness walk to Coca Cola Field, and walkers can enjoy that evening’s Buffalo Bisons baseball game. All breast cancer survivors will receive a free ticket to the Bison’s game courtesy of the Buffalo Bisons.

“Unfortunately, too many women in WNY are impacted by breast cancer.  Our organization works to support these women by providing programming that can help them from diagnosis to survivorship” said BCN’s Executive Director, Rob Jones.  “We are hosting this walk to raise awareness of all the support we have to offer and to raise funds that enable our programming.  We’ve collaborated with a number of local businesses that are supporting the walk and we are really hoping to make this an annual family-friendly event that WNYers can get involved with and support a great cause.”
