Cape May County Department of Health is proud to announce its free Annual Breast Cancer Awareness Walk. The walk will be held at Cape May County’s Park and Zoo on Saturday May 11, 2019. Registration will begin at 9:30 a.m. The walk will begin at 10:15. The event is being coordinated by New Jersey Cancer Education and Early Detection (NJ CEED).
Registration for the walk is free. The first 100 participants will receive a free T-shirt. Donations are welcomed and will go to American Cancer Society. The walk is a 5k at your own pace, this is not a competition. The main goal of the walk is to bring awareness to Breast Cancer and to learn the risk factors associated with it. Throughout the walk there will be educational material on Breast Cancer to bring awareness.
NJ CEED is funded by federal and state grants that offers cancer screenings to those who qualify. NJ CEED offers screenings for Breast, Prostate, Cervical, and Colorectal Cancers. NJ CEED is supported by Cape May County Board of Chosen Freeholders, NJ State Department of Health & Senior Services, and Cape May County Department of Health. Center for Disease Control estimates that each year in the United States, more than 240,000 women get breast cancer. Come join the cause and help bring awareness to Cape May County.
