Walk or Run to Fight Breast Cancer and help support the Manhasset Women's Coalition Against Breast Cancer's (MWCABC) Outreach Program. MWCABC is now forming its team of walkers and volunteers for the upcoming LI2Day Walk to Fight Breast Cancer. New this year, the walk is a one-day half marathon, 13.1 miles along scenic Smith Point Beach and through the local neighborhood. Participants can walk or run, see website listed below for details.
The Outreach Program of the MWCABC is one of the many beneficiaries of the LI2DAY Walk. Outreach greatly depends on the funds raised from the LI2DAY Walk to assist the women in our area who have been diagnosed with breast cancer, as well as support our prevention, wellness, and education programs. All of this money goes directly to Outreach, not research.
The Outreach Program is on the front lines providing help to the women in need here and now . In 2013, Outreach served 74 breast cancer cases, delivered 163 meals, provided transportation, wigs, financial support, household help and wellness services. The Outreach Program received $25,000 from the LI2 Day Walk in 2013 and $252,025 since 2005.
Be part of this amazing one-day journey that will help so many in need. Sign up for "Team MWCABC" at www.LI2daywalk.org. Breast cancer survivors who are not participating in the walk, are invited to attend the closing ceremony and cross the bridge in the final procession. Volunteers are needed throughout the day for four-hour shift assignments.
