AmeriCU supports The Baldwin Fund in their fight against breast cancer. The credit union recently presented a $120,000 check to Beth Baldwin, the Fund’s Executive Director, to support the nonprofit’s commitment to provide critical funding for cancer research in Central New York.
“AmeriCU’s continued support of The Baldwin Fund helps us reach our research funding goal,” said Baldwin recently. “All the funding stays local in our area and helps support breast cancer research grants.”
The Baldwin Fund recently funded one such grant that allowed researchers at Upstate Medical University to make a groundbreaking discovery: how a breast cancer tumor will spread in the future, resulting in significant advancements in methods of detection and treatments for breast cancer.
“AmeriCU is humbled by the advancements that The Baldwin Fund has made towards cancer research and feel honored that we can help contribute to these milestones,” said Ron Belle, AmeriCU President & CEO. “So many of us have personally been affected or know someone that has suffered from breast cancer. This is an opportunity to help make a difference in the lives of our friends, family and in our community.”
AmeriCU has proudly supported The Baldwin Fund since 2010. The check was presented to Baldwin on Friday, September 30 at AmeriCU’s Camillus Financial Center.
