BLOOMFIELD (October 28, 2022) – On October 21st the team at Touchpoints at Bloomfield hosted their 2nd Annual National Breast Cancer Awareness Walk on the care center’s campus. The venue enabled Touchpoints to keep the residents close and safe while enabling their participation and getting fresh Fall air in the process.
According to Cindy Payne, the Director of Therapeutic Recreation for Touchpoints at Bloomfield, the walk organizer, “Breast cancer has undoubtedly touched someone in our lives. October as Breast Cancer Awareness Month is a big part of my past and present and I am pleased that the walk was again a big success.”
Cindy went on to say, “We raised yet again a good amount of money that will go this year to Dana Farber and their research in metastatic breast cancer (MBC). I am hoping with continuing research lives can be extended for those living with MBC.”
Residents signed up for the walk and staff pledged to the residents for their participation at the level of their capability. The staff assisted the recreation department, walking with the residents. The residents and staff wore pink and pink masks were provided as well.
Nice job, Cindy and the Touchpoints at Bloomfield team!
