Senator Sue Serino, said, “Our community is home to so many great resources and organizations that are doing all that they can to empower our neighbors to be proactive when it comes to their breast health, and this Breast Cancer Awareness Month, I am thrilled to be able to partner with the Walkway Over the Hudson to bring them together in one place. As a breast cancer survivor myself, I know that early detection can make all the difference and save lives, which is why I want to ensure that our neighbors have the tools they need to put their health first and get screened regularly. I cannot thank our partners enough for working with us to make this happen, and I look forward to seeing our neighbors there!”

Diane Haight, Interim Executive Director of the Walkway Over the Hudson said, “We are looking forward to partnering with Senator Serino again this year for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. With over 10,000 visitors a day to the Walkway, the important information distributed at this outreach will connect with a wide audience.”
