Sister2Sister (S2S), formerly Sisters Network of Central NJ, was founded in 2000 and is fully committed to fighting the epidemic of breast cancer in the ethnic minority and medical underserved communities.
The S2S Breast Cancer Awareness Run/Walk 4Life highlights our nonprofit‘s commitment 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, volunteers’ 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 support our nonprofit’s Breast Cancer Assistance Program (BCAP), which provides emergency breast cancer related services for qualified women during chemo and radiation treatments.
