Description

What to Expect at the 2020 Sister2Sister Virtual 5K Walk 4Life! 

Sister2Sister “5K Walk 4Life” is going VIRTUAL with FACE MASKS not T-Shirts.

While the pandemic has canceled many important moments in our lives, our mission to support breast cancer survivors during treatment and educate our community isn’t canceled, and neither is our 2020 Virtual 5K Walk 4Life.

Here’s what to expect for this year’s event:

·        Face Mask: The pandemic has changed our 5K to Virtual; we have also changed our T-shirts to Masks.  All participants will be recognized with a Face Mask, not a t-shirt that will be distributed on 9/22 and 9/24 from 11am to 1pm and 6-7 pm and 9/27 from 12:30 to 1:30pm.    We hope the change from Shirts to Masks does not deter you from your commitment to support women with breast cancer. Now is a time to be safe and publicize the importance of wearing a mask and our committee decided that this is a way to demonstrate the need for mask.

Walk where you are! We will not be gathering at Colonial Park; instead, we encourage you to walk in your neighborhood, Local Park, or wherever else you’re able to socially distance with your family, friends and team members.

Registration: Start your fundraising off with a $35 gift for individual and $25 for seniors/students which provides access to the online fundraising tools and connects participants and teams through virtual communication platforms.

We are inviting our participants & teams to Walk Virtually, because the women facing breast cancer need our support now, as much as ever. Whether it’s emotional support via our support group meetings or one-on-one appointment meetings, financial support through our Breast Cancer Assistance Program, or help navigating their care journey, we must continue to be there for them.

Together we will set a collective goal for Sister2Sister 5K Walk 4Life  as we work together to raise $60,000. You can walk 1 mile or accept pledges and walk 10 miles on event day.

 

Remember to follow us on Facebook and Instagram so you can connect with others who share your passion to take action against breast cancer. You can also visit our  website  and join us on 9/19 at zoom link for info and helpful tips on how to engage your team and set fundraising goal. 

Raise $100 and wear your Special Limited Edition 20th Anniversary Remembrance FACE MASK Gift with pride!  Donate $100 to yourself, have friends donate a total of $100 to your fundraising, or a combination of both!

You can purchase Sisters 20th Anniversary ink pen for $5.  If you register by 9-11-20 your name will be entered into a raffle to win a pink and black tote bag, "Cancer messed with the wrong Chick!"

We encourage every participant to:

·         Visit our Facebook and Instagram pages throughout the day to be inspired by live video, photos and comments from your fellow virtual walkers.

·         Share your videos, photos and messages from your walk on our Facebook and Instagram pages; share on your own pages too
