In a show of support for their colleague, a couple Rosicki, Rosicki & Associates employees are organizing a group to walk in honor of their co-worker, who was recently diagnosed with breast cancer. Currently working in reporting, she has been with RR&A for nearly five years and is warmly regarded by her peers.
RR&A staff members Tracy Jennings and Holly Carney have been encouraging their co-workers to donate to or walk in this year’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk at Watt Farms in Albion, New York, on Oct. 26. Whatever the size of the team, participants should arrive at the site at 9 a.m. to register and then begin the 3K (1.86 mile) walk at 10 a.m.
Making Strides Against Breast Cancer (MSABC) is a nationwide network of breast cancer awareness events. Their efforts focus on raising funding and awareness for the American Cancer Society’s work in fighting breast cancer and supporting those with the disease. Participants in the MSABC walk will join over 1 million volunteers throughout the country who are focused on fighting cancer. Every year, nearly 300 communities host MSABC walks, which are open to any and all compassionate individuals. Walking teams comprised of family, friends, co-workers, club members, and anyone else are invited to come together to make a difference. Each event also offers a number of volunteer opportunities in support of the walkers, including working water stations, registration, and other functions.
Since the first MSABC walk in 1993, numerous walkers have raised well over $500 million. The funds have gone toward a vast range of American Cancer Society programs and initiatives that include funding cancer research, providing support and mammograms for cancer patients, and raising awareness of the disease.
By joining in the MSABC walk in Albion, walkers from RR&A will be continuing this successful tradition in support of the American Cancer Society and the millions of people it serves, including friends and colleagues.
