Sharsheret, a national not-for-profit organization supporting women and families, of all Jewish backgrounds, facing breast cancer and ovarian cancer, will participate in the ACS Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk on Sunday, October 20. Last year, more than 400 women, men, and children joined Sharsheret in Central Park for the walk and family fun activities.
Each year, as goodwill partners in the fight against breast cancer, dozens of companies and families support Sharsheret’s programs and services with generous Team Sharsheret sponsorships. “Sharsheret is thriving because of the continued dedication and commitment of so many strong supporters, both locally and nationally,” said Team Captain Ellen Kleinhaus. “This year we are especially grateful to our Team Partner Novartis Oncology and our Team Champions, Bernstein Liebhard, Design By Flora, and the Brocade Study. We deeply appreciate all the Team members and Team sponsors who will come out in full force to walk with Team Sharsheret and enable us to provide vital support to all Jewish women and families facing breast cancer and ovarian cancer.”
