The Levittown United Teachers are active participants in Breast Cancer Awareness month.
Last October, LUT raised over $5,300 and is looking forward to breaking that record performance this October.
LUT will once again be participating in the Jones Beach Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk on Sunday, October 18, 2015. The event begins at 8 AM in Parking Field 5. All are welcome!
If you would like to make an on-line donation to breast cancer awareness and research efforts, click here for our Levittown United Teachers page.
You may also donate through your building by filling out a registration form. Please see your building reps to get more information about the Jones Beach walk and making a donation.
Thanks in part to the American Cancer Society, and people who have donated and supported the cause in the past, breast cancer death rates have dropped significantly over the last 20 years. In fact, women are 34 percent less likely to die from breast cancer today than they were in 1989. Last year the Making Strides walks brought together 800,000 people and raised $68 million. That $68 million came in one walker and one donation at a time, so no matter how much or how little you can give, please support the cause in any way you can. There's still so much work to do.
