When it comes to charity initiatives, I can’t help but urge all of you, my awesome readers, to get involved in the cause. This time, I’d like to call all of your attention to the MoonWalk marathon- an overnight powerwalk marathon presented by Empire BlueCross BlueShield. In this, an estimated 8,000 participants will have a chance to powerwalk through a brightly lit NYC at night. The MoonWalk will begin with a participant opening ceremony celebration at Randall’s Island, and commence with individuals walking through the city’s most iconic landmarks, lit up brightly at night.
The MoonWalk NYC hopes to raise $2 million dollars in one night, most of which is to be granted to the Memorial Sloan-Ketting 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.
If you would like to participate in this awesome initiative, and I highly suggest that you do, be sure to visit the event website, today! Available options are the Half Moon (13.1 miles), and the Full Moon (26.3 miles).
