2017 Walk date! Sponsorships Available!
The Board of Directors of the Ethel Precht HOPE Breast Cancer Foundation are pleased to announce that the 13th Annual HOPE Breast Cancer Walk/Fun Run will be held on Saturday, October 21, 2017, at the Lake Charles Civic Center!
As one of Southwest Louisiana’s premier walks, over 5,000 members of our community will join together on the third Saturday in October to continue the mission of easing the burden of those affected in our community with breast cancer.
The Foundation was formed in 2008 with the sole mission of providing 100% of proceeds directly to individuals in the Calcasieu and Cameron Parishes who are going through breast cancer treatment. Monies raised from this fundraising event are awarded as a financial stipend, regardless of insurance coverage, and may be used for transportation to receive treatment, wigs, prostheses, bras and other items related to a diagnosis of breast cancer. Already in 2017, 39 local breast cancer survivors have received financial assistance totaling $20,993.00. To date, over $365,000 has been donated to help 675 individuals.
Sponsorships for this years’ walk come in various levels, with no amount being too small. All donations and door prizes of any amount are greatly appreciated! All sponsors $1,000 and above will receive a vendor booth on the day of the walk if requested by October 6th. To become a sponsor or with questions regarding this years’ walk, submitting donations or to learn more about the Ethel Precht HOPE Breast Cancer Foundation, please visit www.EthelBreastCancerWalk.org.
