Breast Cancer Alliance
RUN / WALK FOR HOPE
5K – ONE MILE
Sunday, May 1, 2016
Greenwich Avenue will be in pink on May 1st as hundreds of Breast Cancer Alliance’s supporters from toddlers to grandparents WALK and RUN or both to honor and remember those whose lives have been impacted by breast cancer. New this year, a 5K RUN is added to the 1 mile WALK. Do one or both.
Breast Cancer Alliance is one of the largest private non-corporate breast cancer organizations in the U.S. Breast Cancer Alliance has awarded approximately $22 million in grants supporting its mission to improve survival rates and quality of life for those impacted by breast cancer through better prevention, early detection, treatment and cure. To promote these goals, the organization invests in innovative research, breast surgery fellowships, regional education, dignified support and screening for the uninsured and underserved.
