Marblehead is gearing up for the 18th annual Breast Friends Walk on Oct. 8 at Devereux Beach. This 2-mile loop event around Marblehead Neck will see supporters from various backgrounds come together to raise funds.
The proceeds will aid the MGH Chelsea HealthCare Center in its mission to support breast cancer patients. The funds will enhance essential services like transportation, childcare, appointment scheduling and translation — crucial for facilitating early cancer screenings.
The Breast Friends Walk shares a deep-rooted connection with Marblehead. Founded in 2006 by Sara Bryant, after her breast cancer diagnosis, the initiative grew under the stewardship of her family and later local champions like Grace Elmer and Emily Lucien.
With over $464,848 raised to date, the event, backed by strong local connections, draws support from all over New England. For more details, donations or registration, visit: bit.ly/3F15DYC.
