Apr 30, 2017 08:15AM
Walkers have the option to complete one, two-and-a-half or five miles, with sponsorship encouraged. The cost to enter is $25, which includes a t-shirt, water and refreshments. Participants can enter t-shirt size in the comment field when registering online. A group photo will be taken at the start of the walk.
“We lead by example and teach the world that adopting a healthy lifestyle benefits those affected by cancer and prevents the disease process that leads to the formation of breast cancer,” says Executive Director Ann Griffiths. HCF provides funding for services not always covered by health insurance, including yoga, nutritional education, fitness, massage, guided imagery, acupuncture and other healing therapies, as well as support groups, grief counseling programs and educational programs with guest speakers for patients, spouses, caregivers, children of patients and nursing staff.
HCF is a nonprofit organization founded in 2007 by nationally recognized breast cancer surgeon, Dr. Beth Baughman DuPree, after the publication of her best selling book, The Healing Consciousness: A Doctor’s Journey to Healing. DuPree believes that conventional Western medicine integrated with Eastern modalities helps one achieve the balance needed to begin the healing process.
