Event Information

Event Info:
More than 11,000 women and men in our community this year will receive care at the Fortunato Breast Health Center at John T. Mather Memorial Hospital. On Saturday, May 6, 2017 at 7 am, area residents can show their support for these individuals and the Center by taking part in the 23rd annual Families Walk & Run for Hope.

Hundreds of people take part each year in the 5-mile journey through scenic Port Jefferson and Belle Terre. They walk & run to support those with breast cancer. They travel in memory of a mother, father, sister, brother, daughter, son, friend or co-worker whose life was cut short by the disease. And they raise funds to help area residents receive state-of-the-art breast care at Mather Hospital.

In addition to the Walk & Run families may participate in fun activities including the “Pink Your Pooch” costume contest, face painting, temporary tattoos and balloon sculpting.

Challenge yourself by signing up for our five-mile, timed run! Take a chance by purchasing tickets for the raffle! You need not be present to win one of more than 100 prizes! We accept cash, check or charge!

Please support our efforts by becoming a sponsor or putting a Team together. Your participation is the most precious gift you can give!

Sign up as an individual or form a team with family and friends, co-workers or schoolmates. Register at www.matherhospital.org/walk. Call 631-476-2723 for more information.
