Cancer doesn’t go away in a pandemic, and neither does TeamWalk for CancerCare’s commitment to supporting cancer patients in need.
When we transitioned our TeamWalk for CancerCare last April to TeamWalk on your terms, we never imagined that we would need to do the same for 2021. While the vaccine brings us promise, we want to maintain the highest level of safety for our TeamWalk participants and will therefore, once again be holding TeamWalk on Your Terms instead of a live, in person event.
TeamWalk on Your Terms allows you to hold TeamWalk on your turf and on your time! When it is safe and you feel comfortable, simply choose when and where you want to walk, such as:
· Get your team together for a 3 or 6 mile walk on the date and time of your choosing. You can walk on the original date of May 23rd or whatever date is best for you between then and September 1st.
· Walk with a friend around the neighborhood
· Walk with your dog on a local trail
· Walk by the home of a cancer patient and wave
· Walk by yourself wherever you want!
Last year, hundreds of TeamWalk’s loyal supporters gathered their teams together on their terms, and raised more than $363,000 to support cancer patients in need along the way.
“We’d rather all be together this spring, but last year showed we can still make a big difference in the lives of cancer patients and their families, even when we’re apart,” said Jody White, President and CEO of Lowell General Hospital. “The needs of these families has never been greater than right now, and every dollar raised will go back to the community.”
