The COVID-19 pandemic may have prevented us from gathering in-person at the Art Museum this year—but we can and will still have a great time as one giant community walking on June 28 to save lives and bring an end to breast cancer. The key to our virtual event—and your sense of empowerment and community—is having everyone share photos, videos and thoughts of their walk activities on social media and engage with your fellow walkers by reading and commenting on their posts, too! This way, we’ll keep the conversation, and the inspiration, going for 12 full hours on June 28—plus raise more critical dollars to keep our mission moving.

Someone will be walking to keep our mission moving—every minute on Sunday, June 28 from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. We encourage you, your friends and your family to continue to engage with us as much as you can during that time—and believe us, Komen Philadelphia and your fellow walking community will be sharing plenty to keep you entertained, inspired and MORE THAN PINK! Remember: the more you engage, the more you’ll enrich your experience and be an active part of embracing more people in the Komen Philadelphia mission.
Here's how you can be part of it all, and contribute to the experience of others, on June 28:
“Join us” on our Facebook page for a live stream of our socially-distanced, coronavirus-safe opening ceremonies. Our Virtual Walk kick-off celebration will include an inspiring musical performance, messages from our survivor and sponsor communities, a ceremonial “first walk” from community ambassadors and more. Be sure to comment and share as it happens!
Post your best photos and/or videos from your individual or group—as you walk or immediately after you walk—for a chance to win up to $60 in Wawa gift cards! To qualify you must:
Komen Philadelphia and Wawa will award three $20 Wawa gift cards to the winners in each of these categories. Moreover, we will pick a group of winners three times during the day—morning, afternoon and evening:
Our CEO will also pick her top two favorites from all photos/video to be rewarded with a $50 Wawa gift card.
Your virtual experience starts the week before the Virtual Walk. Be sure you are following us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, and indicate you are “going” in our Facebook Virtual Walk event so that you don’t miss a thing.
As a reminder, here’s how you can engage with us on social media every day, from now until June 30—and especially for our Virtual Walk social media blitz starting on Monday, June 22. Every day be sure to:
Here are some highlights for the week:
Stay connected with us on social media for the entire week following the Virtual Walk. Just a few things we’ll be sharing include: the names of our Wawa Virtual All-Stars winners, winners of our ShopRite Survivor Prize Packages, more sponsor thank-you and support videos, Virtual Walk participant photo album and more.
As you engage with us for the Virtual Walk, keep in mind these tips to help make sure you share appropriately, put your most hope-filled face forward, maximize your experience as well as your impact on inspiring others in our community and, above all else, help keep our mission moving!
At least one group, somewhere in Komen Philadelphia’s 15-county service area will be walking on June 28 every minute of the day from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. But you don’t have to walk for all 12 hours! Walk as long or as little as you’d like and pick the time that is best for you and your walking partners. Feel free to walk more than once during the day—but please share your photos every time you do!
We want to see you in your MORE THAN PINK best! Dress for comfort and safety, but also for the people who share your passion for our mission. Wear and display whatever you would have included at Eakins Oval—from pink tutus to tiaras, fundraiser recognition shirts to team banners, in-memory of placards to in-celebration signs. Also remember, you'll be in your neighborhood, so decorate your doors, front yards, cars—get creative and show your hope!
You can walk anywhere you feel comfortable and safe. Walk inside or outside, around your backyard or neighborhood, in a park or along a trail. You can even Walk on a treadmill. As long as you do it safely and observing social distancing guidelines, the sky’s the limit.
*If you do not have any availability to post on social media and/or someone to assist you, you may send ONE photo to firstname.lastname@example.org (subject line: My Virtual Walk photo) and we will include it in our post-Walk photo album. Please send ONE photo only and include your name, the names of anyone else in the photo, and the town in which you walked.
