Where In The World...

I'll be at the march today --- hope to see you there!
AREA’S LARGEST BREAST CANCER AWARENESS EVENT
“MAKING STRIDES AGAINST BREAST CANCER” RETURNS OCTOBER 19th
Thousands to rally in Washington Park to Support American Cancer Society

ALBANY, NY – Pink-clad people will walk, trot, stroll, ramble, meander, saunter and march through the streets of Albany on Sun., Oct. 19th. Regardless of the synonym used, the intention will be clear as thousands of local breast cancer survivors and volunteers will band together in the annual American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk at Washington Park. The walk is, traditionally, the largest breast cancer awareness event in the Capital Region.

Last year, more than 13,000 people participated in the local Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk raising more than $900,000. Proceeds go to support the American Cancer Society’s breast cancer research, education, advocacy and patient service programs. More than 1000 women are diagnosed with breast cancer in the Capital Region each year. The disease claims 215 lives annually in the Capital Region.

Who: Families, friends, coworkers, survivors and anyone who wants to join the fight against breast cancer. Thousands of people are expected.

What: The American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer event is a 5K, non-competitive walk to raise awareness and proceeds for the fight against breast cancer. Making Strides is annually the area’s largest breast cancer awareness event.

When: Sunday, Oct. 19, 2008
Registration begins at 10 a.m.
The walk begins at noon

Where: Washington Park
Albany, NY

COMMENTING FEES
Per comment rate: $2
Payable by either clicking the BitCoin "tip me" button or the PayPal "donate" button in the sidebar.

WAIT, WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY TO COMMENT?
Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

I NEED TO BE HEARD! BUT I DONT WANT TO PAY.
Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
