A Message from Dr. Love
In this time of uncertainty, we remain committed to our mission, to end breast cancer. Breast cancer doesn’t stop because the world seemingly stops. In 2019, an estimated 268,600 new cases of invasive breast cancer were diagnosed among women and approximately 2,670 cases among men. I am writing to share that our largest fundraiser, Walk With Love, will go on with 100% virtual, online participation.
Over the past 11 years, together, we have raised millions of dollars for breast cancer research through this walk. This year, both Charity Navigator and Medical News Today ranked us the top breast cancer research organization in the U.S. for our stewardship of resources and impact. With your support, we can achieve even more. On May 17, in lieu of hosting walks in Pacific Palisades, Palm Springs and Santa Barbara, we are asking our supporters to participate virtually. Walk in your home, neighborhood or any other of place of your choosing!
We are prioritizing the health and safety of our walkers, volunteers, and staff and are responding to guidance from the Centers for Disease Control. Registered virtual participants will still receive a Walk With Love bundle, which includes a limited-edition t-shirt, custom walker bib, and a social media toolkit to help you share your experience with the Walk With Love community online. VIP virtual participants will receive the Walk With Love bundle plus a collectible lapel pin.
Together we will reach our fundraising goal of $250,000 in support of innovative, ground-breaking breast cancer research.
With love and thanks,
Dr. Susan Love
Founder & Chief Visionary Officer
