I Am Walking for Wellness House. Here's Why:
Hello everyone! Thank you for your support!! I am participating in the Walk for Wellness House on Sunday, June 28, 2020. I would love for you to join me and my team (The Wave) in supporting Wellness House!
The walk has been changed to a virtual event - meaning you can walk or run any distance you want in whatever space inspires you! If you register by May 31, 2020, you will receive your commemorative t-shirt in time for the walk, otherwise it might arrive late.
When I was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2017, I learned about Wellness House from friends and my medical team. I'm so thankful for them, especially during this COVID closure!
At absolutely no cost to those affected by cancer, Wellness House offers a wide variety of programs involving family support, exercise, stress management, nutrition, information and education, networking support groups, art and cooking classes, counseling, and more. Due to COVID-19, they quickly and seamlessly moved their programs online, which has made access to the sessions easier!
They have been so kind to me and extraordinarily supportive in assisting me in my continued journey. I have participated in a number of programs at Wellness House, and I am energized and motivated even more after each one! Thanks to the generosity of individuals, foundations and corporations Wellness House has been doing this important work for over 30 years!
My team name is “The Wave” because a cancer diagnosis can be like a wave. Throughout the journey for anyone battling cancer there are plenty of ups and downs. Sometimes it’s calm and manageable. Sometimes it’s relentless and tries to knock you off your feet.
I’m participating in this walk because I know how important support and community has been for me, as well as for other people impacted by cancer, and I want to do my part to ensure that others continue to have access to the life-changing programs and services provided at Wellness House.
I will continue to fight the battle, and having support from my family, friends, co-workers and Wellness House – makes the various challenges less stressful or daunting. Support helps you stand strong when those waves try to knock you off your feet.
Even though it's virtual now, I hope you'll join me June 28th! Walk or run whatever distance you want in whatever space inspires you!
I would appreciate any support you can provide, either participating in the event virtually or by making a donation. Your contribution will assist my team in reaching our goals and in supporting Wellness House programs and services, which are led by experts, and designed to prepare and empower people to fully live life with cancer.
Thank you very much, and stay healthy!
