About South Padre Island
Walk for Women
WHO WE ARE
An all-VOLUNTEER 501c(3) organization
To benefit women in the lower Rio Grande Valley by providing financial, prosthetic and diagnostic support as they battle breast cancer.
Women fighting breast cancer should not have to make the choice between paying everyday bills or paying for the treatments they need.
Through the embrace of the community and annual fundraising event, Walk for Women is able to raise the funds that are contributed to local area women fighting breast cancer.
Through our Breast Cancer Awareness Walk, Walk for Women offers a day to support the fighters, celebrate the survivors and honor the taken.
WHERE THE FUNDS RAISED GO
Over $300,000 given to more than 60+ Valley women and their families.
Contributions of $50,000 to the Valley Baptist Legacy Foundation for mammograms and $14,500 to the Carolyn Fund for prostheses.
Donations totaling $10,778 to Baylor Medical Institute, MD Anderson Cancer Center and the American Cancer Society.
SIMPLY PUT … OVER THE PAST 14 YEARS
Total money distributed to help women battling cancer and for cancer research: Over $300,000
“We cannot lift the overwhelming burden women fighting breast cancer carry, but with the financial assistance we provide, we hope to lighten their load, if only for a short while.” Quote from the volunteers of Walk for Women.
