#BAPSCharities | #JoyofOthersWalk
Be a part of our annual In the Joy Of Others Walk | Run! The participation by you and your family as walkers and fundraisers will provide critical support to BAPS Charities so that we may continue providing charitable and humanitarian services in your community and communities the world over.
The walk is organized to celebrate the most fundamental element of any community – families – and inspires tens of thousands of people to carry forth the spirit of service. Along with our continuous activities and programs, BAPS Charities is proud to once again support Susan G. Komen® and their fight to address breast cancer from multiple fronts. 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with the disease during their lifetime and will impact every family in one way or another.
The walk, like all BAPS Charities activities, is driven by the belief that In the Joy of Others, Lies Our Own. We hope you will join us in providing joy to those who are facing unimaginable adversity.
