Walking for a Cause

imagejpeg_2CCFY’s Family and Community Organizer, Jeannette Bocanegra, joined Affinity Mentor Abdul Malik Talib and one of our SBCC families to take a stand against breast cancer.  The group walked with the local correctional association in honor of Demetria Frampton, who is herself a survivor, retired correctional officer, and grandmother.  The Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk was held on October 21st at Orchard Beach.  The event drew a crowd of 9,000 people and raised a total of over $487,000.  CCFY truly believes in the power of communities uniting for progress, whether in the pursuit of juvenile justice reform or cancer prevention.  And we love to see our youth involved!
