7th annual walk – October 3, 2015 10am
PLEASE NOTE: the bridge over Garfield is under construction so the 2015 walk has been re-routed. We will start and end at Hyde Park.
Teresa Majewski lost the battle with Breast Cancer when she was only 34. She passed away in October 1993. Her family has decided to help by having an awareness walk here in her home town of St Joseph, MO. They promised Teresa that they would do everything they could to decrease the amount of people that have to go through what she did.
In memory of Teresa Majewski, we will be Painting the Parkway Pink to raise money for Breast cancer research.
The 7th annual walk will be October 3, 2015.
Spread the word, wear your pink, and bring the dog!
St Joe, get involved! Especially those who have been hit hard. It seems like everyone knows someone who has had the brush with breast cancer, whether it was a mother, a sister, aunt, grandmother, neighbor or YOU!
We encourage everyone to come out and join us on Saturday October 3rd, 2015 for our 7th annual Paint the Parkway Pink Breast Cancer Awareness walk. Check in will begin at 8am at Hyde Park. If you register prior to Sept 10 you will go to the “Pre-Registered” line. If you registered after Sept 10 you will look for the “Late Registration” line. We will begin the walk at 10am. Due to the construction on the Garfield bridge we will walk from Hyde Park, to 11th street and back to Hyde Park. There will be refreshments and music after the walk. If you would like our free t-shirt, we need you to be registered by Sept 10th with a $25 minimum donation. We cannot guarantee you a t-shirt if you wait to register the day of the walk.
