Meet Laurence Segal - a go-getter, a man working to raise money for a good cause, and he's doing it right here in Central New York. Segal is collecting bottles and cans for the Carol M. Baldwin Breast Cancer Research Fund - which is located here in New York.

The goal is to raise one million bottles and cans by the end of September. Segal will be taking his efforts to the New York State Fair, where he will have his Carol M. Baldwin Breast Cancer Research Fund Booth set-up. He's asking people to stop by and donate their bottles and cans - even one bottle makes a difference. His work doesn't just stop at the state fair, though. According to syracuse.com,

Determined to reach the million-bottle mark by the end of September, Segal again partnered with the Syracuse Chiefs to collect bottles from NBT Bank Stadium. He also now collects from P.F. Chang's and World of Beer in Destiny USA, RealtyUSA offices in Fayetteville and Manlius, and Delta Sonic Car Wash in Fairmount.

 

Breast Cancer is a huge issue across America - for both men and women. Most people either know someone who has been diagnosed with breast cancer - or is going through it themselves. According to breastcancer.org,

About 1 in 8 U.S. women (about 12%) will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of her lifetime...
