Join Us for the 4th Annual T.E.A.L. Walk in Whitesboro
Many will make their way to Whitestown Town Park this weekend to bring awareness and help in the fight against ovarian cancer - And it's not too late for you to be a part of this event.
We can't believe the big day is almost here already! After spending the past few months talking about this amazing cause and letting you know about different fundraising efforts going on throughout Central New York for this organization, it's almost time for the main event: The walk.
If by some chance, you haven't heard us talking about the TEAL Walk, here's what you need to know:
- "TEAL" has two meanings. The first, "Tell Every Amazing Lady," which means to tell the women in your life about the signs and symptoms of ovarian cancer. The other meaning is "teal" the color, which represents ovarian cancer and ovarian cancer awareness.
- This walk brings people together in the community who have been affected by this deadly disease, both first-hand and those who have lost loved ones.
- The walk isn't very long and from the opening ceremonies to the closing, you're only looking at two hours or so. That means it won't take up your whole Saturday, so no excuses for not going.
It's not too late to be a part of this amazing event in Whitesboro. Unfortunately, online registration has closed, but you can still register in person, at the event, before the walk actually begins. Cost is $20 per walker.
If you can't participate in the walk, but still want to be a part of this cause, you can sign up to be a "virtual" walker or you can donate to the walk. You can get more details about these two options at: TealWalk.org/Whitesboro
The event happens this Saturday (September 8th). It will begin with different activities and raffles starting at 9am. You may want to arrive a little early if you still need to register. Opening ceremonies will follow at 9:45am with the walk beginning around 10am.
The whole event is very moving, as you’ll meet those who’ve suffered from the disease, and those who have lost loved ones to it. But everyone comes together to bring awareness, to share their stories, and to raise money in the fight against ovarian cancer. We hope to see you there on Saturday.
