The 10th Annual Walk With Love on May 21st was a great success! More than 700 supporters (and four-legged friends!) joined in the Pacific Palisades and virtually in 10 states to walk and run with their families and friends. On behalf of our entire team, we would like to thank our sponsors, participants, teams, volunteers, and advocates across the country for helping to support Walk With Love.
Thanks to your support, Walk With Love has raised over $193,000, which takes us nearly 80% of the way to our goal this year. You can still donate to Walk With Love through June 30th
Your contribution helps further our work to:
- Help scientists recruit volunteers needed for their studies through our Love Research Army
- Illuminate quality of life issues that impact people living with breast cancer
- Understand what causes breast cancer by better understanding the human breast
- Explore innovative ways to diagnose and treat breast cancer in low-and middle-income countries
- Translate science into digestible information so people can be empowered partners in their health
Congratulations to all runners and walkers for completing the 3.1-mile course. If you ran the 5K, you can view your race results here. Be sure to also check out some of the great photos from Walk With Love here. And don’t forget to use #WalkwLove when you share your own Walk With Love photos!
Thanks to Helene Dameris
Special thank you to this year’s Honorary Chair, Helene Dameris, who founded Walk With Love 10 years ago and continues to play a key role in ensuring its success today.
“I have always believed that you need to pay attention to what comes your way! 11 years ago, the signs led me to Dr. Love when I took part in a clinical study. Dr. Love herself performed the procedure and I had an audience with her for an hour and a half. I knew then Dr. Love would be the one to eradicate breast cancer. The next day I told her I wanted to start a walk to raise funds for breast cancer research.” – Helene Dameris, 10th Annual Walk With Love Honorary Chair
Thank you, once again, for your commitment to a future without breast cancer. We look forward to seeing you next year!
Special thanks to our sponsors for their generosity and support in covering all event costs, allowing 100% of volunteer-raised funds go directly to research.
