New York, NY – This summer, take a break from the kids for a great cause. Grant making charity Walk the Walk is bringing back its bra-baring marathon, The MoonWalk New York City, presented by Empire BlueCross BlueShield, where women and men Power Walk the streets of New York overnight in decorated bras to raise money and awareness for breast cancer. Grab your girlfriends, bedazzle your bras and register today at: www.walkthewalkamerica.com.
The party kicks off on Saturday, July 26th at 8 pm at Randall’s Island where you’ll enjoy a delicious group feast, awesome live entertainment and tons of free giveaways. After the festivities, you’ll Power Walk this renowned midnight marathon (with a half marathon option) with Olympic and World Cup Soccer Star Brandi Chastain.
As you snag free snacks and hydrating drinks along the route, you’ll befriend participants, get fit and healthy and raise money for Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center’s Breast Examination Center in Harlem (BECH) which provides breast cancer screenings for underserved, Harlem women at no out of pocket cost.
Plus, meet founder and breast cancer survivor Nina Barough who started Walk the Walk 18 years ago in London, earning support by notables including His Royal Highness Prince Charles, Paul and Stella McCartney, Sir Richard Branson, Pierce Brosnan and designer Swarovski Crystal. Today, Nina leads Power Walking marathons and challenges across the globe including The MoonWalk in Scotland, Iceland and as of last year, America. To date, it has engaged over 300,000 participants and has raised over $144 million dollars to support breast cancer research and those affected by cancer.
