As a proud sponsor, Astera Cancer Care will be present with tents on site to welcome participants, survivors, and thrivers. Whether you walk the entire distance or join us at the finish line, your presence makes a difference. Let's capture the spirit of unity and determination in a memorable group photo.
We'll provide Astera Cancer Care t-shirts for all participants, and you're welcome to bring your pink accessories to show your support. Your involvement helps us stand united in the fight against breast cancer.
Note: American Cancer Society T-shirts can be mailed in advance of the walk to any of our patient survivors who register prior to September 24. When you register, you will need to respond to the ACS confirmation email and enter your information so that the shirt can be mailed to your residence prior to the walk. If survivors register after September 24, they may still be able to get a shirt (no guarantees).
