Women’s Hockey Helps in the Fight Against Breast Cancer

The women’s ice hockey team recently participated in the American Cancer Society’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk. The event, which took place in Albany’s Washington Park, featured thousands of walkers who raised more than $405,000.

The Engineers, consisting of 23 walkers including players and coaches, raised more than $1,700 for the cause and finished in the top 50 for donations raised by teams from across the Capital Region.

This is the fourth season the team has participated in the walk, having raised over $7,200 toward the fight against breast cancer. 

The Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk is a noncompetitive walk to help fight breast cancer and provide hope to people facing the disease. Participation in the event supports the American Cancer Society’s lifesaving research, prevention, early detection, and support programs for thousands of patients and their families.
