Allegacy’s fight and passion against breast cancer first began almost two decades ago when three Allegacy employees were diagnosed within a small span of time. Since then, we have witnessed the battles of employees, members, friends and family. Allegacy’s contributions have helped fight breast cancer here locally for 16 years with our participation in the Northwest NC Race for the Cure. Our contributions mean more men and women can receive assistance and in-depth support than ever before.
