With only a week until the 18th Annual Gouverneur Breast Cancer Walk, it is time for residents and businesses owners “pink out” their buildings before the “sea of pink” descends on Gouverneur next Saturday, May 18. The Gouverneur Breast Cancer Fund will announce the three pinkest businesses and individual homes during opening ceremonies.
The 18th Annual Gouverneur Breast Cancer Walk will be held on Saturday, May 18. Registration starts at 8:30am in the Gouverneur Village Park. Opening ceremonies will be at 10:15 with the walk immediately following. First 300 walkers to register will receive a gift bag. And t-shirts for anyone donating a minimum of $35.00.
The team and individual raising the highest amount of money will be recognized the day of the walk.
The Gouverneur Breast Cancer Fund hosts this annual walk to bring survivors, fighters and supporters together to honor all who have fought this fight, are fighting or to remember those no longer with us.
This one-mile walk is organized to raise funds for those fighting breast, ovarian or a cancer that has mestastized from said cancers.
The money raised is 100 percent used to assist these patients in St. Lawrence, Jefferson, Lewis or Franklin Counties of New York with their household, utility, automobile, medical, prescription medication and many other necessary expenses during treatment.
There will be pink hair extensions, pink merchandise, raffles, bake sale and so much more available. All are encouraged to mark their calendars, and come out and join in this amazing event to celebrate the survivors, support those currently fighting and honor those no longer with us.
