The Women’s Breast & Heart Initiative to Host Third Annual Pink Walk at Aventura Mall
AVENTURA, FLA. – September 17, 2019 – The Women’s Breast & Heart Initiative (WBHI) – an outreach organization dedicated to educating women about the importance of breast and heart health, while providing them with the resources to beat breast cancer and heart disease – will host its third annual Pink Walk at Aventura Mall on Sunday, September 29.
Rooted in the belief that all women should benefit from early detection that could save their lives, WBHI mobilizes volunteers and resources to provide at-risk women with the education, prevention strategies, screenings and treatments necessary to fight breast cancer and heart disease. Despite remarkable advances in treatment and a stronger focus on prevention, breast cancer remains one of the leading causes of cancer-related deaths, while heart disease is the leading cause of death among women in the United States.
The two-mile Pink Walk, which takes place annually at Aventura Mall, serves as one of WBHI’s community events aimed at raising funds to further support the organization’s mission and vision for a future in which no lives are lost to breast cancer and heart disease.
Participants can enjoy either the Pink Walk or the new Stroller Stroll, which was created with parents of young children in mind. The event will kick off at Aventura Mall’s Center Court, and will remain on the same floor of the mall throughout its duration.
WBHI’s goal is to have 500 walkers join the fight against breast cancer at the Pink Walk and encourages each participant to set a $50 fundraising goal. Those who meet this goal will receive a fundraising medal.
“Aventura Mall has been a wonderful supporter for many years. Together, we’re all about empowering women,” says The Women’s Breast & Heart Initiative founder, Andrea Ivory, who is also a breast cancer survivor. “This is where so many of us women go to shop, eat and gather – and now, we’re going to raise funds for each other. Aventura Mall’s investment in us, as well as the generous support we’ve received from American Express and others, is an investment in the women of our community.”
The event begins at 7 a.m. Equinox will lead participants in a warm-up.
“The Women’s Breast & Heart Initiative’s work in our community is truly saving lives,” says Jackie Soffer, Chairman and CEO of Turnberry, owner and manager of Aventura Mall. “It’s an honor to help the team bring their event to life and host participants who support their wonderful cause.”
WBHI’s third annual Pink Walk is supported by Aventura Mall – Title Sponsor, American Express – Presenting Sponsor, and Jackson Health System – Platinum Sponsor.
