This year the Spring Valley High School Boys Varsity Soccer team raised $350 for Miles of Hope Breast Cancer Foundation in Lagrangeville, NY.
The mission of the foundation is to fund support services and outreach for people affected by breast cancer within the nine counties of the Hudson Valley, New York (Columbia County, Dutchess County, Putnam County, Westchester County, Rockland County, Orange County, Ulster County, Greene County, and Sullivan County).
All funds raised in the Hudson Valley are used to support programs in the Hudson Valley. Some of the current programs funded by the Miles of Hope Breast Cancer Foundation include:
Complementary Medicine – this includes funding of massage therapy, Reiki, acupuncture, music therapy, exercise/dance, and art therapy programs to enhance recovery.
Scholarships for college-bound high school seniors whose lives have been affected by breast cancer. Scholarships are given in all eight counties.
Medical Gap Care Fund for individuals who are faced with life emergencies and/or costs not covered by health insurance while they are undergoing treatment for breast cancer.
Peer-to-Peer – a program uniting recently diagnosed breast cancer patients with trained survivors.
