On Sunday, October 20th, the BSCTA joined thousands of participants in the Making Strides for Breast Cancer Walk. This annual event raises money to help those who are newly diagnosed with breast cancer and to raise awareness of the deadly disease. At the walk, we joined by dozens of other Long Island teachers' unions.Our statewide union, the New York State United Teachers (NYSUT), compiled all of the money raised by locals from across the state. We are proud to announce that statewide, we collected $263,391. Great job to everyone who donated and who took part in the event.
