The Capital District Transportation Authority (CDTA) is once again partnering with the American Cancer Society in its fight against breast cancer. CDTA turned one seat pink on each of its BusPlus buses as a way to bring attention to the disease during the month of October.
“We are proud to once again partner with the American Cancer Society on this important issue,” said David M. Stackrow, CDTA Board Chairman. “We all know someone who has been affected by this disease, some of us more personally than others.
In addition to the pink seats, a pink hangtag will include a breast cancer fact and information about the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk on October 16th in Albany’s Washington Park. Follow their strides on Twitter!
