Cape May County Department of Health is proud to announce its Annual Breast Cancer Awareness Walk. The walk will be held at Cape May County Park & Zoo on Saturday, May 7. Registration will begin at 9:30 a.m., and the walk will begin at 10:15 a.m. The event is being coordinated by New Jersey Cancer Education and Early Detection (NJ CEED).
Registration for the walk is free. There will be local vendors and free blood pressure screenings offered by Walgreens. The first 100 participants will receive a free T-shirt. Donations are welcome and will go to American Cancer Society. Walk at your own pace – this is not a competition! The main goal of the walk is to bring awareness to breast cancer and to learn the risk factors associated with it. Throughout the walk, there will be educational material on breast cancer to bring awareness.
NJ CEED is funded by federal and state grants that offer cancer screenings to those who qualify. NJ CEED offers screenings for breast, prostate, cervical and colorectal cancers. NJ CEED is supported by the Cape May County Board of Chosen Freeholders, NJ State Department of Health & Senior Services and Cape May County Department of Health. The CDC estimates that approximately 1,000 lives are saved each year because of early detection. Come join the cause and help bring awareness to Cape May County.
