Announcement: Cancer Walks

Participating in cancer walks can be a great way to fight cancer and support those who are dealing with the challenges of cancer. Cancer affects all of us, either directly or indirectly.

If you don’t believe cancer affects you, consider these statistics. According to the American Cancer Society, more than 1.4 million new cases of diagnosed cancer will occur this year alone. In 2004, there were approximately 10.8 million people who had a history of cancer. Last year the cost of cancer was estimated to be over $200 Billion dollars! Cancer does affect all of us.

Cancer walks don’t only raise funds for worthy charities that battle cancer every day. They also help create an awareness and can even be used to recruit volunteers and advocates for the cause.

The purpose of each cancer walk is different. The money raised may go to a nonprofit organization that deals with many forms of cancer or one specific form. Decide where your passion is and get involved in a cancer walk that aligns with your passion.

Some of the more popular cancer walks include:

  • Relay for Life (American Cancer Society)
  • Breast Cancer 3-Day (Susan G. Komen for the Cure)
  • Avon Walk for Breast Cancer (Avon Foundation)
  • Making Strides Against Breast Cancer (American Cancer Society)
  • Lung Cancer Walk (LUNGevity Foundation)

Search out a cancer walk in your area and get involved. You can play a part in wiping out the disease and supporting those who deal with cancer until it is only a memory.

2006 3-Day Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Walk- Tampa, Florida

This was an amazing experience for me. I was asked by my friend, Judy Jenkins to help her and her team with whatever they needed from documenting the event to moving their belongings from one hotel to the next. I was deeply moved and very impressed with how organized the event was. I highly recommend either walking, volunteering to help a team and definitely donating to someone that is walking. To donate to my friend, go to www.3-day.org and search for Judy Jenkins. Thank you for watching, Angel
