LUT Member is a Hero in the Fight Against Breast Cancer

Wednesday, September 20, 2017

For many years, Summit Lane teacher, Tracy Smith, has been an active leader in raising awareness and money for a great cause.

Tracy is organizing LUT participation in this years’ Jones Beach Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk.  The walk will take place this year on Sunday, October 15.

Last year, Tracy established a team website for the Levittown United Teachers that helped raise $4,541 for the fight against breast cancer.  This year, the goal is simple: breaking the $5,000 barrier.

Donations will also be taken in each school building through building representatives.  See your building representatives for registration forms.          

The Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk is one of many activities sponsored by the in American Cancer Society.  Due to the tireless efforts of this organization and the financial support of donors across the country, breast cancer death rates have dropped significantly over the last 20 years. Women are 34 percent less likely to die from breast cancer today than they were in 1989.

Last year “Making Strides” Walks brought together 800,000 people and raised $68 million.  Because those funds were available, more people in our communities...

  • Have the information and tools they need to stay well from breast cancer or find the disease early, when it’s easiest to treat.
  • Have a place to turn for help 24/7 if they are facing breast cancer. 
  • Benefit from the progress being made toward finding breast cancer’s causes and cures.
  • Get access to information that navigates them to lifesaving mammograms and treatment.

Thanks to dedicated people like Tracy, the American Cancer Society has soldiers in the fight to put an end to breast cancer deaths in our country and throughout the world.
