I heard about MoonWalk in the past, but didn’t really know all the facts. When I found out that it was coming to NYC on July 20th, I wanted to find out more. As I work on my own weight loss to make healthy changes, I am interested in exercise that also supports a good cause.
One of the reasons that I like MoonWalk (besides the outrageously unique bras that are worn) is the fact that the money raised is going local. Most of the fundraising from the MoonWalk NYC will be granted to Memorial Sloan-Kettering 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.
- Walk The Walk is bringing their iconic overnight power walk, The MoonWalk to New York City on July 20th at 10pm.
- 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)
So, what do you think NYC, does this sound like a fun way to raise money for an important local cause?
