Story

Dear Family and Friends,

Almost three years ago, Annie, Buzz, Peg and Deb started walking together as both an adjunct therapy for cancer treatment and a fun, safe way to socialize during the impending pandemic. We collectively have either personally experienced cancer, had family or dear friends lose a battle to these horrendous diseases, or have been the support person to others. We adopted the Japanese term of “Forest Bathing” for our walking activities, attempting to live in the present moment while immersing our senses of sight and sound in the natural settings of our nearby communities. We spent time walking neighborhoods, traversing rail trails and greenways, and exploring mountain trails in all seasons. We participated in Concord Hospital's RNR for two years virtually on our own. But we are now ready to do this in person in the planned 5K run/walk event on May 19, 2022. 

You are receiving this because you are family or a friend of one of us and have supported us in our life’s challenges. And this is both an invitation and a challenge. We’d love you to join our team “The Forest Bathers” and walk with us. We’d then challenge you to invite another friend to join the team or to donate $50 to support the team. Or if you’re not ready or are unable to join us, we’d appreciate for you to consider a donation of any amount to this cause. 

Proceeds of this event support services to cancer patients and survivors in a way that dignifies people and treats them with the utmost care and sensitivity from diagnosis through treatment and beyond. Services include education, support groups, nutritional counseling, complementary therapies, funds for out-of-pocket expenses and more. 

Please know that all donations to this cause are meaningful; we thank you for your consideration.

Best,

Annie, Buzz, Peg and Deb
