On Sunday, October 18, more than 30 Bet Torah Nursery School staff members, parents and friends of the Nursery School, joined together at Manhattanville College for the annual American Cancer Society’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk. There were smiles and cheers all around us as we walked through the starting line to begin our 5-mile walk through the campus of Manhattanville and through the streets of Purchase.
This year, our Mitzvah Makers team raised over $11,000 — our highest amount over the 7 years that we have participated in Making Strides. This brings our team’s 7-year total contribution to Making Strides to well over $55,000 (ranking us #9 this year of the 525 participating teams!) After the walk, we all enjoyed a delicious tailgating brunch, hosted by Morah Mindy and her family. Dr. Cary Goltzman (husband of Morah Kathy) again generously provided delicious home-smoked salmon!
Funds raised through Making Strides Against Breast Cancer are used to find causes and cures for breast cancer, to help people get well and stay well from breast cancer, and to empower people to fight back against breast cancer.
