Walk 13.1 miles and Fight Breast Cancer
LI2Day walk is JUNE 11th
The Manhasset Women's Coalition Against Breast Cancer (MWCABC) is
now forming its team of walkers and volunteers for the upcoming LI2Day
Walk to Fight Breast Cancer. The walk is a one-day half marathon, 13.1
miles along scenic Smith Point beach and through the local neighborhood.
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 and other women’s cancers, as well as support our
prevention, wellness, and education programs. All of this money goes
directly to Outreach, not research.
In 2014, Outreach served 81 breast cancer cases, 27 women with other
cancers, delivered over 50 meals, provided transportation, wigs, financial
support, household help and wellness services. The Outreach Program is on
the front lines providing help to the women in need here and now. Last year
our Outreach Program received $31,700.00 from the LI2 Day Walk and
$283,500.00 since 2005!
Be a part of this amazing one-day journey that will help so many in need.

Survivors who are not participating in the walk are invited to attend the
closing ceremony and cross the bridge in the final procession. Not a walker?
Volunteers are needed throughout the day for four-hour shift assignments.
