Broadwalk Raises Over $9,000 for Delaware Breast Cancer Coalition
The Delaware Breast Cancer Coalition (DBCC) Broadwalk on the Boardwalk, which wrapped up CAMP Rehoboth’s Women’s FEST on April 15, was another enjoyable victory in the fight against breast cancer despite not so perfect weather.
This eighth annual Broadwalk raised over $9,000 dollars to support the Delaware Breast Cancer Coalition’s local programs and services for those facing breast cancer. That brings the total proceeds for the Broadwalk in the eight years since its inception to over $60,000 for the Delaware Breast Cancer Coalition.
Despite wind and cold weather, nearly two hundred attendees gathered on the boardwalk to join the free event, organized and originally created by Kathy Wiz in honor of her sister’s battle with breast cancer. All cancer survivors were included in the celebration.
This year’s walk had a special meaning for the CAMP Rehoboth community. Steve Elkins, co-founder of CAMP Rehoboth, passed away last month after a battle with lymphoma. Many participants donned stickers commemorating Steve to honor his legacy and wore pink for breast cancer, lime for lymphoma, and lavender for awareness of other cancers.
This 2018 event was made possible to due generous support from CAMP Rehoboth and the Jolly Trolley along with donations from the community. Sponsors include DJ Sharon/DuneTunes, Karen Gustafson, Dos Locos, Fortier Photography, Geri Dibiase Photography, Lori’s Café, Signarama, and Steve Elkins and Murray Archibald. T-shirts were underwritten by Cathin Bishop, Deb Knickerbocker, Evelyn, Natalie, Lucilu and Gretchen, Evie, Barb & Toddy, Laura Simon, and Mark Purpura.
Proceeds benefit DBCC’s programs which increase breast cancer awareness, promote the importance of early detection, provide access to mammograms, and provide support and resources to women and men in the local community who are newly diagnosed or facing recurrence of breast cancer. ▼
