Walking the Walk

On October 15, the Anne Kastor Brooklyn Free Clinic made strides against breast cancer.

You know who we are — a team of students in the health professions — medicine, nursing, public health, physical therapy, and more — who are sincerely dedicated to expanding access to primary care for underserved populations in our community, especially those without health insurance.

We formed a team for the American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk because breast cancer affects our clinic patients, their families, and the broader Downstate community to which we belong. Raising money for our local ACS chapter can help save the lives of our neighbors — friends and strangers alike.

The money we raised with your support will have broad-reaching impact: funding innovative research, providing information to people dealing with the disease, providing transport to treatment, and connecting survivors with places to stay when they must seek treatment far from home.

We wish to thank our community for its continued support of our mission. For more information about this event, please visit the akBFC’s Making Strides website or watch the video below!
