Help in the fight against breast cancer: Walk The Walk’s MoonWalk New York City

Life is going way better for me than it was this time last year.

Of course, last year, it was going pretty shitty, but it makes me feel guilty — like that now that I have the strength to, I should be using it for something more worthwhile than myself.

I was pitched Walk The Walk’s iconic overnight power walk, The MoonWalk, which is making its way  to New York City on July 20th at 10pm, and it sounded like just the ticket.

Presented by Empire BlueCross BlueShield, the overnight walk through New York City will have an estimated 8,000 participants and will begin with a participant opening ceremony celebration at Randall’s Island. Walkers will then depart weaving through Manhattan past the city’s most iconic landmarks, lit up brightly at night.

There are two courses to ensure that everyone can participate no matter their fitness levels or abilities.: Half Moon (13.1 miles) and Full Moon (26.3 miles) The MoonWalk NYC hopes to raise $2 million dollars in one night, most of which be granted to Memorial Sloan-Ketting Cancer Center to help support the Breast Examination Center in Harlem, one of the first free screening facilities for breast cancer in the country where 80% of patients are uninsured but guaranteed support and guidance.

Since its inception fifteen years ago in London, MoonWalk has engaged over 300,000 participants and has raised over $126 million dollars to support vital breast cancer causes. Doesn’t it seem amazing?? I’d love to get involved — and I hope some of you will be interested as well. Who is with me?! Follow the link I shared above for more information!
