8th annual walk – October 1, 2016 10am
PLEASE NOTE: the 2016 walk will start and end at Hyde Park.
Teresa Majewski lost the battle with Breast Cancer in October 1993, she was only 34. 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 8th annual walk will be October 1, 2016.
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 1, 2016 for our 8th annual Paint the Parkway Pink Breast Cancer Awareness walk. Check in will begin at 8am at Hyde Park. If you pre-registered you will go to the “Pre-Registered” line. If you have not registered, you will look for the “Late Registration” line. We will begin the walk at 10am. We will walk from Hyde Park, to 11th street and back to Hyde Park. There will be refreshments and music after the walk.
