The Walnut Foundation would like to thank all who supported ‘Walk The Path” Walkathon 2019, our annual fundraising and outreach signature event. With your support and enthusiasm, we were able to exceed our fundraising goal of $20,000. To date we have raised a total of $26,700.
More importantly, we are able to continue the work of educating men about the benefits of early detection of prostate issues and more effective management of a prostate cancer diagnosis. We will continue to educate men on how to better interact with the healthcare system to ensure better outcomes and continue the collaboration with our community partners in delivering after care options to men and their caregivers, once men have been treated for prostate cancer.
More specifically, the support you have provided, will allow our team to continue to provide a once monthly meeting forum for men to discuss health issues and coping strategies. It supports Our annual free February Symposium and our Annual Health Conference which is coming up on October 19th 2019. Our team has been very active in visiting community and church groups to share our experiences and educate men about prostate cancer as well as other emerging health issues.
The ability to deliver these services on a 100% volunteer basis would not be possible without the strong support of you our sponsors, volunteers, walk participants and their families, contacts and supporters and for that we are deeply appreciative. VIEW the Facebook® photo-album.
