#BAPSCharities | #JoyofOthersWalk
Join us at the In the Joy of Others: Walk | Run as we embark on a journey of taking 100 million steps together in support of Susan G. Komen and their efforts to address breast cancer on multiple fronts, making the biggest impact against the disease.
In 2021, it is estimated that 284,000 new cases of breast cancer will emerge among both men and women. What can we do to help? We can walk or run!
The heart of any community is unity. If we are united, we can provide critical needs to those affected by breast cancer and invest in breakthrough research to prevent and cure the disease. Year after year, BAPS Charities’ Walks remind us that we can walk further when we walk together. Each step we take this year in support of Susan G. Komen is a step in support of the joy of others, through which we can discover our own.
In our efforts to collectively walk 100 million steps, we are united in the spirit of service even though we are apart. During this year’s event, let’s get moving, together!
This year’s event in Los Angeles is also supporting The Play Equity Fund by the LA84 Foundation. The Foundation is focused on bringing the transformational power of sport and play to all children, regardless of their race, gender, zip code, or socioeconomic status. The importance of Play Equity is to support kids and communities demands finding sustainable solutions. The Play Equity Fund is the cornerstone of this movement.
The LA84 Foundation was established in 1983 to manage Southern California’s share of the surplus from the highly successful 1984 Olympic Games in Los Angeles. This year’s Walk location is the historic Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, the site of the 1932 and 1984 Olympic Games and the future 2028 Games.
