CARE Walk 2020 will be different.....

CARE Walk cares deeply about all in our community during this time of uncertainty with the COVID crisis. We fully support and applaud the efforts of our state and local governments and the CDC in controlling the outbreak of the virus with social distancing and the cancellation of large events.

We also know that cancer survivors/thrivers continue to need our support. Their needs for compression garments, therapies, and other essential services have not gone away. Therefore, we have decided to offer a “DIY CARE Walk” this year.

Please walk independently in honor and support of a loved one and wear your favorite CARE Walk t-shirts (or anything pink) to spread awareness about the importance of early detection when it comes to breast health.  Be sure to perform your monthly self-exam and take care of YOU during this period of isolation.  You can learn how to perform a self-exam by clicking here.

While we will not have registration for a formal walk this year, we would gladly welcome donations at https://www.daytonfoundation.org/ccgift.html?fund=Care_Walk_Fund_3981 so we can continue to serve survivors/thrivers in our community. Any amount is appreciated. As always, 100% of your donation will go to those in need in our community via our fund at The Dayton Foundation.

We look forward to a happy reunion and celebration at our 20th anniversary of CARE Walk on May 8, 2021. Our best to all and a tremendous thank you to all of our sponsors—please support them as they have continued to support all in our community during the best and the worst of times.

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. 

 

If you would like more information about how can you get involved, please send us an email at contactcarewalk@gmail.com.

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.
