WHAT IS CARE TO WALK/RUN?
The Care to Walk/Run North Brunswick is an annual 5K event first held in 1999 to honor cancer survivors, remember those who lost their battles with the disease, and raise awareness about steps we can take to reduce breast and ovarian cancer risk.
Founded in 1998 by a group of women in North Brunswick, New Jersey who had personally dealt with breast and/or ovarian cancer, Care to Walk/Run has raised over $250,000 in support of cancer awareness, with proceeds going to The Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey (CINJ).
This year’s Walk/Run will be held on Sunday, October 27 at the NBTHS Football Field. On-site registration and check-in starts at 8:00 am, with the main event set to begin at 9:00 am.
IN LOVING MEMORY
Care to Walk/Run 2013 is dedicated to Annette De Marco, who lost her battle with breast cancer this past June. Her children, Nicole, Patrick, and Jessica, has this to say about their mom:
“Our mom, Annette, was the most loving, caring, and kind-hearted person, who devoted her life to her family and friends.
“She was truly a selfless person and is missed everyday by those who loved and knew her. We couldn’t think of a more deserving woman for Care to Walk/Run to be dedicated to! We are so honored by this kind gesture, and she would have been so proud to be a part of this effort, in hopes of one day finding a cure for all cancers!”
