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 African American community.

The SNCNJ Breast Cancer Awareness Race/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 (B-CAP), which provides emergency breast cancer related services for qualified women during chemo and radiation treatments.
