MIAMI - Aug. 17, 2022 - PRLog -- The Women's Breast & Heart Initiative (WBHI)—a leader in disease prevention & early detection— returns with its 6th Annual Pink Walk—5K Run and Walk hosted by Miami Dade College at the North Campus. Leading into Breast Cancer Awareness Month, WBHI's Pink Walk 2022 will be held the morning of Sunday, September 25th inviting the community and their families to run or walk while raising funds for breast cancer disease prevention and early detection.

Returning this year to supercharge the morning, Constance Jones, anchor and reporter for NBC 6, WTVJ South Florida, will serve as the emcee for The Women's Breast & Heart Initiative's Pink Walk 2022. Waking up households with the top-rated weekday morning show, Ms. Jones will invigorate the runners and walkers while inspiring participants to help the community beat the odds of breast cancer.

The Pink Walk registration is $30.00, and participants receive a t-shirt and finisher medal. Runners and walkers are also empowered to play an active role in helping to transform and save lives by setting up a personal fundraising page. Special swag will be awarded when participants raise $50, $100, $250, $500, and more, helping WBHI get to its $100,000 goal.

Supporters of WBHI's 6th Annual Pink Walk can also participate virtually in a 5K Run and Walk around their neighborhood, or at the park, beach, or other convenient outdoor location. All are invited to spread the word among friends, family, and the community at large, while challenging three other people to join in.

The morning event begins with registration at 6:00 a.m., opening ceremony at 7:00 a.m., and race/walk kickoff at 7:30 a.m. The WBHI Pink Walk will feature some of the best local food trucks including Just Juice offering refreshing cold-pressed juice and The Juice Somm with their natural juices and energy drinks.  Macy's Fashion Truck will bring an added touch of style to the morning, showcasing exclusive trends in apparel, accessories, and more.

The Women's Breast & Heart Initiative's Pink Walk participants will also join in celebrating one year since the organization's designation as the first official Florida license plate that supports Disease Prevention & Early Detection. Pre-sale vouchers will be available for purchase at flbreasthealth.com/licenseplate  during the 5K event for exclusive swag.

The 6th Annual WBHI Pink Walk is made possible thanks to generous supporters including host partner Miami Dade College, premier sponsor Don Soffer, presenting sponsor Jackson Health System, platinum sponsor Assurant, along with supporters Genentech, Fresco y Más, Commissioner Sally A. Heyman, LED are Us, Invision Diagnostics, Misha's Cupcakes, LUX Medical Center, Colodny Fass, Starbucks, and more.

"We are so delighted to once again bring The Women's Breast & Heart Initiative's Pink Walk to Miami Dade College and truly thank our sponsors, supporters, and participants," states Andrea Ivory, WBHI's founder and executive director. "Our mission of disease prevention and early detection combats breast cancer and heart disease to realize a better tomorrow. Runners, walkers, and joggers can help transform and save lives, one step at a time, while empowering at risk women, low-income populations, and college students with the resources necessary to help beat the odds of breast cancer."

Each year, 1 in 8 will be diagnosed with breast cancer and more than 43,000 die. Despite remarkable advances in treatment and early detection, breast cancer remains one of the most frequently diagnosed cancers among American women, and it remains one of the leading causes of cancer-related deaths.
