The New York Institute for Special Education held its 6th annual walk for their students to raise breast cancer awarness and funds on Friday, October 24.

More than 100 developmentally delayed, visually impaired and emotionally challenged students took part in the walk on the spacious campus, and they also sold baked goods. The event coincided with Breast Cancer Awarness Month. All donations went to the Susan G. Komen Foundation.
