Come Walk The Walk in New York City July 20th #MoonWalkNYC

Before becoming a part of this campaign I had never heard of Walk The Walk. Now that I've had the opportunity to hear, read, and watch a video about it I really wish we lived closer to New York so I could be a part of this amazing event. It's amazing to think the walk all started from the idea of one person and her 13 friends that joined her in the walk through New York City in their bras. All these years later the walk has grown by leaps and bounds and as you can see from the photo below so much larger!

When and Where? Walk The Walk is bringing their iconic overnight power walk, The MoonWalk to New York City on July 20th at 10pm. 

What?  Presented by Empire BlueCross BlueShield, the overnight walk through New York City will begin with a participant opening ceremony celebration at Randall’s Island. Walkers will then depart weaving through Manhattan past the city’s most iconic landmarks, lit up brightly at night.
There are two courses to ensure that everyone can participate no matter their fitness levels or abilities.: Half Moon (13.1 miles) and Full Moon (26.3 miles) 

Why? Most of the fundraising from the MoonWalk NYC will be granted to Memorial Sloan-Ketting Cancer Center to help support the Breast Examination Center in Harlem, one of the first free screening facilities for breast cancer in the country where 80% of patients are uninsured but guaranteed support and guidance. 

You can sign up to participate in  either walk (half moon 13.1 miles, full moon 26.2 miles) by following this link.
