10/9/11 In support of National Breast Cancer Month, Puget Sound Bank joined 2,000 walkers in the King County Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk. The Bank had 27 enthusiastic participants who prevailed against wind and rain and a few steep hills to honor the survivors and support the cause. Through various office fundraisers, including the beloved “Jeans day,” the Bank raised $2,665 for the American Cancer Society.
“We wholeheartedly believe in the effectiveness of early detection and want to do what we can to empower women to reduce their risks of breast cancer,” said Jim Mitchell, CEO and President of Puget Sound Bank.
