Cold Spring Harbor, N.Y.
— The Breast Cancer Research Program at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, where innovative breast cancer research is being performed, was among the beneficiaries of this year's annual Pink Ribbon Bagel campaign run by Panera Bread. The campaign raised more than $30,000 to benefit several local breast cancer organizations during Breast Cancer Awareness Month, when Panera Bread bakers hand twisted thousands of cherry vanilla bagels into the iconic “pink ribbon” shape to raise funds for prevention and a cure.
The other beneficiaries of this year’s funds were the Adelphi Breast Cancer Hotline & Support Program whose goal is to educate, support, empower and advocate for breast cancer patients, professionals and the community; Prevention is the Cure which seeks to increase public awareness of environmental links to breast cancer and promotes a precautionary health model; and Gilda’s Club New York City which creates welcoming communities of free support for everyone living with cancer – men, women, teens and children – along with their families and friends.Full release from Panera available HERE.
