To date, Valley has raised nearly $1 million in support of breast cancer research
WAYNE, N.J. – September 18, 2018 – Valley National Bank will be hosting its 10th annual “Valley Goes Pink!” breast cancer walk Saturday, October 13th, in Wayne. Registration for the walk will kick off at 9 AM at 1460 Valley Rd.
Valley Goes Pink! is an inspirational and impactful opportunity to raise money and awareness in support of the Cure Breast Cancer Foundation (CBCF) and their mission to find a cure for breast cancer. Over the past nine years, Valley has raised over $900,000.
All proceeds raised are used for research and conferences at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center and other national and international research facilities under the direction of Dr. Larry Norton, who serves as the Foundation’s Scientific Advisor.
Donations to the CBCF fund innovative research that could dramatically change the treatment for breast cancer in the future. CBCF is the primary source of funding for research on the Self-Seeding Theory, conceived by Dr. Larry Norton in collaboration with Dr. Joan Massagué. The Self-Seeding Theory provides radically new insight into how breast cancer grows and spreads, including a revolutionary concept of cancer as a disease of cell mobility as well as cell division. Mounting evidence from this pioneering research is translating a theory into life-saving treatments.
Donations can be made at any Valley National Bank branch, or online at www.curebreastcancerfoundation.org - type “VNB Walk” in the company field. If you are interested in participating in the walk, please contact Candy Infante at [email protected]
