About This Activity

Sisters Network of Central New Jersey (SNCNJ), an affiliate chapter of Sisters Network® Inc., was founded in 2000 and is fully committed to fighting the epidemic of breast cancer in the Afri- can American community. The SNCNJ Breast Cancer Awareness Race/Walk 4Life® highlights our nonprofit‘s commit- ment to advancing breast health education, breast cancer awareness, advocacy, and community outreach. It is a celebration of survivorship, and also serves as a remembrance of loved ones who succumbed to this dreaded disease. Our first Breast Cancer Awareness Walk® was held October 2005 and has experienced increased registrations, volunteer support, and community participation each year. This well-attended 5K community event has definitely heightened the organization’s ability to sound the alarm that; “Early Detection Is the Best Protection!” In addition to supporting many community breast health awareness programs, funds raised from this event supports our nonprofit’s Breast Cancer Assistance Program, which provides emer- gency breast cancer related services for qualified women during chemo and radiation treatments.
