October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. At the General Membership Meeting on Thursday, October 13, the Amber Light Society of Local 3 IBEW raised over $1,300 for the American Cancer Society. Funds go toward critical research and services for people trying to cope with their breast cancer experience.
The following weekend on the morning of Sunday, October 16, Local 3’s Apprentice Committee took part in the American Cancer Society’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer (MABC) campaign by organizing a team for the breast cancer walk in Flushing Meadows Corona Park, Queens — one of the 150+ community events taking place throughout the month of October. Local 3 apprentices Anthony Murillo and Scott Avnyin co-chaired the Local 3 Apprentice Committee team. Local 3 members and families proudly walked side by side with community members and raised over $5,000!
