Our Lady of Assumption School holds Zumba fundraiser for Male Breast Cancer

Our Lady of the Assumption School in Pelham Bay held an all-day Zumbathon to raise funds and awareness for male breast cancer in October. The students raised $583 for the Male Breast Cancer Coalition which they gave to the organization in a recent check presentation. The coalition seeks to educate, enlighten and engage ordinary people and the medical community in a nationwide initiative to draw awareness to male breast cancer.
