The Community Walk for Breast Cancer is on Sunday, September 26, 2010 at James Baird State Park in Pleasant Valley, New York. Pre-registration has ended, but you can still come to the event and register there. The entry fee for walkers who register the day of the walk is $35. We will be walking, rain or shine! More information.
The 2010 Community Walk for Breast Cancer honors Doris (Doi) Cohen. She is a staunch supporter of Miles of Hope who raises thousands of dollars for the Walk each year. Doi is a vital member of our breast cancer support community. As an 8-year breast cancer survivor, she mentors women through their medical and emotional journey with grace, caring, and optimism. Miles of Hope is thrilled to honor Doi this year.
We will walk a 5K distance. A shorter garden walk is available for those not able to complete the 5K. Hundreds of Hudson Valley residents have walked with us in the past. 2010 will be our eighth annual Walk and we welcome all participants.
Kids under age 12 walk free with a paying adult. Dogs on a leash are welcome.
It is our HOPE that each walker will raise at least $100 to support the programs run by Miles of Hope. All proceeds from this walk go to the Miles of Hope Breast Cancer Foundation. All checks should be made payable to Miles of Hope Breast Cancer Foundation. Online donations are also welcome at http://www.active.com/donate/walkforhope2010
