CARE Walk CARES!
CARE Walk puts the CARE in all that it does! On behalf of all breast cancer survivors/thrivers, thank you for supporting us so we can support them.
Our Priority Is To Help People in the Miami Valley
Over the years we have helped many people in the Miami Valley through our donations to various breast cancer organizations: The Breast Cancer Foundation, The Breast Cancer Task Force of the Greater Miami Valley, The Cancer Prevention Institute, Hipple Cancer Research, Living with Lymphedema, Maple Tree Cancer Alliance, Noble Circle, Pink Ribbon Girls, and the Sister-Sister Breast Cancer Support Group.
The Breast Wishes Foundation
The mission of the Breast Wishes Foundation is to grant wishes that bring JOY to women and their families affected by breast cancer. The Breast Wishes Foundation present wish recipients with spa days, restaurant gift cards, yoga retreats, nutrition classes, family vacations, and financial assistance for medical bills and holistic treatments that aren't covered by insurance. CARE Walk is a proud sponsor of this wonderful organization that brings light in the darkness of those struggling with breast cancer and all the bills that diagnosis brings.

Living with Lymphedema
Lymphedema is a chronic condition that can occur when lymph nodes are removed during breast cancer surgery. Fortunately, lymph node removal does not always result in lymphedema, but lymphedema does affect 1 in 5 breast cancer survivers and thrivers in our community. Unfortunately, many insurance companies do not fully cover the treatments or compression garments required to control the swelling in the limbs of people living with lymphedema. CARE Walk is a proud supporter of the wonderful folks at Living with Lymphedema, whose mission is also to serve the uninsured or under-insured in our community, by providing compression garments free of charge.

The Noble Circle Project
The Noble Circle Project is a community of women over 18, who provide support to one another as they learn to navigate living with a cancer diagnosis. CARE Walk has been a proud sponsor of the many programs and services Noble Circle provides to their sisters, such as retreats, classes in nutrition and wellness, and more.

CARE Walk Funds Renovations at Maple Tree Care Alliance
CARE Walk provided the money for the supplies needed to build equipment storage racks at the Maple Tree Cancer Alliance Exercise center. Jacob Kordik, with the help of his fellow scouts in Troop 320, provided the design and labor.
Breast Cancer Awareness Video Contest
CARE Walk has supported the Breast Cancer Awareness Video Contest available to all high school students in the Miami Valley. Students create videos promoting a designated aspect of breast cancer awareness, post them on YouTube, and encourage all their friends and family to watch the videos and vote for their favorites. There are two categories for winners—one for most hits on YouTube and the other for best video message.
Here are a few of the winning videos:
