Each year on the third Sunday of September, thousands of breast cancer survivors and supporters join together to celebrate life, remember loved ones and share in the journey.
The walk begins with balloons, noise makers, music and streamers. Participants walk (and paddle) on a 10 mile journey with friends, family and folks who they have never met before.
But stranger and family alike, the support is tangible.
The purpose of the walk is to increase community awareness regarding breast cancer screening, breast health and support those women and men living with the diagnosis.
However, it is Join the Journey’s largest and most significant fundraiser, raising most of the annual operating expenses to run the programs and services.
