October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. Breast cancer affects 1 in 8 woman. It it a very personal cause near and dear to the Rye PBA. Just as many of you have. We know and love one too many woman who have courageously fought this terrible disease.
Together we can support efforts to find a CURE to breast cancer. We walk, we run, we hold hands and we say prayers. This year alone the Rye PBA had donated over $5000.00 to help beat breast cancer. We are now selling a long sleeve T-shirt to raise more money and most importantly awareness for this great cause. ALL money collected will go directly to this fight. This year we will be supporting Soul RYEDERS with this effort. A wonderful organization SOUL RYEDERS is a volunteer-driven charitable organization, based in Westchester County, NY, committed to empowering those in our community who are affected by all types of cancer. From diagnosis through treatment, recovery and survivorship, they offer practical resources and nurturing support services that provide dignity, confidence, hope, and compassion. We will be selling these shirts from now through the end of October.
