For the fourteenth year, Women Supporting Women will be hosting their Walk for Awareness at Winterplace Park on Saturday, October 10th.
Survivors and friends are encouraged to form teams to walk in honor or memory of someone in your life who has been impacted by breast cancer, or just walk for fun! Registration begins on-site at 8:30a.m. Ceremonies begin at 10a.m. Registration is $25 in advance, $30 on “walk” day. Children 12 and under walk free with an adult. Dogs are welcome for $5 and are given a “goodie bag”. Awards are given for top fundraising team, top fundraising individual, largest team, most spirited team and best decorated dog.
The event includes participation from local businesses and vendors, a selfie station and a dove release honoring those who are fighting the battle of breast cancer and in memory of those who have lost the battle. Lunch is provided by Texas Roadhouse and this year, a dunking booth will be included where walk participants have the opportunity to dunk “VIP” guests from the community. Included in the lineup is Deverco’s Brad Gillis, WBOC TV’s Lisa Bryant, BBSI’s Tony Nichols, and mayor candidate Jake Day.
Participants who raise $100 or more will receive a 16 oz. insulated tumbler with a pink lid and straw as a free gift.
