It's our 20th anniversary and we hope you'll roll with us for now....

It’s hard to believe that our homegrown, grassroots Breast Cancer 5K CARE Walk will have its 20th anniversary this year.  We are so excited to share this happy news during this year of uncertainty.  While we can’t be sure when we’ll be able to safely hold our 20th CARE Walk, we want you to know that we are planning an in-person event and celebration.  We are hopeful for a fall date.  Until then, we will continue to “roll” with the punches and will send updates as soon as we finalize plans. 

We will be in touch this summer regarding our plans for 20th CARE Walk.  Until then, on behalf of our CARE Walk team of dedicated volunteers, we thank you sincerely and wish you good health.  

If we achieve our dream, these cheerleaders will grow up to a world without breast cancer... or cancer of any kind!

DIY CARE Walk raises $18,500 in 2020...

Thanks to our sponsors, donations from our many supporters, and a grant from The Breast Cancer Foundation, we raised more than $18,500 with our DIY CARE Walk in 2020 and were able to support our fellow Daytonians through Noble Circle, Living with Lymphedema, and The Breast Wishes Foundation.   As you know, this has been a very hard year for many, and just because the pandemic has shut down a lot of our community, it has not stopped the number of folks who have been diagnosed with breast cancer or who need ongoing services and treatments.  We are glad we were able to continue providing the support the survivors/thrivers in our community have come to rely on. 

Early Detection Is the Best Protection

Our CARE Walk team of volunteers would like to remind everyone that early detection is the best protection.  Please take time for monthly self-exams and yearly exams with your doctor, and don’t forget to schedule your mammograms. It’s easy to forget to take care of YOU during the busy-ness of life, but it is essential for breast health.  Click here to learn about early detection.

Nature reminds us not to forget to monthly self-exams!

THANK YOU!

We want to thank everyone in our community who supports our dream of a world without cancer.  Thanks to this support, we have been able to help hundreds of survivors/thrivers with services and to reach countless people with our message of "early detection is the best protection." Because we are a team of volunteers, 100% of the proceeds from CARE Walk goes to the cause and stays here in Dayton.
