Annual event to be held on Sunday, October 20 at the Outlets
CENTRAL VALLEY, N.Y. (October 11, 2019) – Thousands of supporters are expected to attend this year’s American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk on Sunday, October 20, at Woodbury Common Premium Outlets. Registration for the noncompetitive event begins at 7:30 a.m. and the walk will start at 9 a.m., rain or shine.
Money raised from the walk will go toward funding innovative breast cancer research, promoting education and providing comprehensive support to those who need it. The event will kick off with an opening ceremony featuring a survivor speaker and Zumba class as well as Yoga and a special dance school performance. There will also be a special area for survivors and their caregivers, as well as children’s activities such as face painting and balloon animals. New this year, Party Corner by the Nike Water Station! DJ Echo and friends will be entertaining along that stretch of the walk.
“It is heart-warming to see the community rally together with Making Strides Against Breast Cancer in an effort to help eradicate this disease,” said Kristi Greco, Community Development Manager at the American Cancer Society. “We all have been affected by cancer in our lives, either ourselves or our loved ones and friends. This is an opportunity for everyone to make a difference.”
Participants are requested to register at the check-in tent when they arrive. Those who have registered online are also requested to check in. Survivors will receive a special gift, which they can collect at the survivor tent.
“Woodbury Common is again honored to host such an important community event and be part of the movement to end breast cancer,” said David Mistretta, Woodbury Common Premium Outlets General Manager. “The Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk raises awareness, fuels necessary research and helps support patients and families.”
In addition to everyday savings of 25 to 65 percent at Woodbury Common Premium Outlets’ more than 250 retailers, event participants will receive a free savings passport. Pre-registered attendees will receive an ACS discount pass as a special gift.
The three-mile walk will end when the last walker has crossed the finish line.
