October is Brest Cancer Awareness month, and every year Albany, NY does a great job of participating and and curating events around awareness and bringing thousands of people together for a great cause. This year is no different.

The Annual Breast Cancer walk will take place Sunday, October 20 in Washington Park in Albany. The walk will begin at noon. There will be vendors out there where you can purchase pink merchandise and donate to the breast cancer cause.

The funds raised at this family-friendly event enable the American Cancer Society to save lives from breast cancer by investing in groundbreaking research; providing free, comprehensive information and support to those touched by the disease; and helping people take steps to reduce their breast cancer risk or find it early when it’s most treatable.

This is a free event to walk and attend. Last year it was a beautiful turnout with hundreds of people from all over the Capital District coming together to walk for a great cause.
