Announcing Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Kickoff

County Executive Garnar and Assemblywoman Lupardo Join American Cancer Society for Announcement

(BINGHAMTON, NY) Broome County Executive Jason Garnar and New York State Assemblywoman Donna Lupardo accompanied the American Cancer Society to announce the kickoff to the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer event.

The announcement was made in the courtyard behind the Broome County Family Court building where Assemblywoman Lupardo and Nanticoke Gardens funded beautiful flowers to be placed in the flower beds in honor of breast cancer awareness.

“We want to thank Assemblywoman Lupardo and Nanticoke Gardens for their generous donation to beautify Courthouse Plaza,” said County Executive Garnar, “It’s a great space for Government Plaza employees and the community to enjoy and with the new flowers for breast cancer awareness, it’s made the area even more welcoming.”

"Courthouse Plaza is great public space where employees and residents stop regularly,” said Assemblywoman Lupardo. “I was happy to partner with Nanticoke Gardens to spruce it up for the summer in a way that would help increase awareness of breast cancer. With the American Cancer Society's Making Strides Against Breast Cancer event approaching, I hope these flowers will remind visitors about the importance of ACS's work."

The Making Strides Against Breast Cancer kickoff event will be held on Thursday, August 17 at The Orchard at Chenango Commons. The event is the best way to learn about this year’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer event. Participants will provide all the tools needed to be successfully involved in this year’s festivities.
