Description

THIS IS A VIRTUAL EVENT! During this difficult and uncertain time due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we thank you and invite you to participate in our Virtual Walk. With so many people social distancing the ability to virtually 'Connect with a Cause' is more important than ever. During the pandemic, breast cancer isn't taking a break, people who have cancer or are undergoing cancer treatment are often more likely to get infections.

 

We encourage participants to "Walk together at the same time, but not at the same place!" on Saturday, November 7, 2020 starting at 9:00 am to enhance the sense of a community Walk Day celebration.

 

Participants, click here to follow us on our Facebook Event Page, this is where our live virtual event will air. On Nov 7th post your pictures and/or short 2-3 min. videos on our Facebook Event discussion section of yourself walking 3 miles wearing a Sisters Network Dallas walk t-shirt from a previous walk or pink and black. You must have a Facebook account to follow the discussion and post pictures/videos. 

Participants may walk 3 miles (approx. 6000 steps) anywhere outside or inside (even on a treadmill). To maintain social distancing, participants should walk solo or with those within their household and not physically walk with other team members. If walking in small groups, please follow social distancing guidelines outlined by the CDC.
