BPS Attorney To Participate in 3-Day Komen Breast Cancer Walk

This year Attorney Bridget Gallagher, a partner at Brown, Paindiris & Scott, LLP, will be participating in the Susan G. Komen 3-Day walk in Boston.  She and her six other team members will walk a total of 60 miles over the course of three days in order to raise money to help support breast cancer research.  These 3-day walks are annual events and this year will be held fourteen major cities around the country.  Each participant is required to raise $2,300.00 in order to participate in the walk.  The events often draw as many as two thousand participants in each city, resulting in an extraordinary contribution to the fight against breast cancer.  Attorney Gallagher and her team members will walk on July 27, 28 and 29.

Attorney Gallagher will be joined by her dearest college friends, all of whom have participated in an annual girls weekend trip since they graduated in 1991.  This year their usually carefree girls weekend will be replaced by this fundraising event, a big commitment for each of these ladies, all of whom have young children at home.  With the support of their families and friends they will collectively help to raise a significant sum to help support breast cancer research.  The group was inspired to participate in the walk due to the recent diagnosis of their friend and team captain, Beth, mother of four young children, who underwent a double mastectomy this year.  Thankfully she is doing well and they have all been humbled by her enduring strength and positive attitude.
