bubly Sparkling Water & Walmart team up with Susan G. Komen Upstate New York for statewide sampling & breast awareness event
ELMIRA, N.Y. (WENY) -- bubly sparkling water and Walmart are teaming up for the cure during this Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
Tomorrow from 12 to 3 p.m., Walmart locations throughout the Southern tier will provide samples of grapefruit flavored bubly, in support of a nationwide partnership with Susan G. Komen, called Scan Your Cans.
Participating locations in Elmira regional area
- 2405 Vestal Parkway E, Vestal
- 1400 County Road 64, Horseheads
- 515 E 4th Street, Watkins Glen
At each location, volunteers, many of whom are breast cancer survivors, will be available to speak with consumers on the importance of breast health and early detection.
The limited edition bubly cans will have a Facebook AR experience to support this awareness.
It is estimated that 16,300 men and women in New York will be diagnosed with breast cancer this year alone.
According to Komen Upstate New York, breast cancer stage is the most important factor relating to prognosis -- the earlier the stage at the time of the diagnosis, the better the prognosis.
