I am a member of the One2One network and they provided me with the information to share this with my readers. Having an Aunt that is a survivor of Breast cancer this is important to my family and I like blog about it as often as the opportunity arises, and help spread the word.
This summer, Walk the Walk is bringing its legendary MoonWalk to New York City for the first time to raise awareness and funds for breast cancer causes.
At midnight on July 20, 2013, thousands of women and men will power-walk through the streets of New York City wearing brightly decorated bras to inspire others to get fit and have fun. The route will weave through the city’s most iconic landmarks, lit up brightly at night.
Races unite our cities and towns and bring out the best of the human spirit. The walkers, spectators, volunteers, staff, and fundraisers for The MoonWalk will also be supporting those who have been affected by the tragic events in Boston. The fitness community will persevere and emerge more unified than ever.
Since its inception fifteen years ago in London, MoonWalk has engaged over 300,000 participants and has raised over $126 million dollars to support vital breast cancer causes.
The MoonWalk NYC, presented by Empire BlueCross BlueShield, is raising awareness and funds for Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center to help support their Breast Examination Center in Harlem. At the Breast Examination Center, over 80% of the patients are uninsured.
The goal is to ensure that every breast cancer patient—regardless of where she or he lives or works or was born—has the access to highly-skilled, empathetic breast cancer medicine to achieve the best outcome, no matter their circumstances.
