Honoring Survivors, My Hope Chest Puts A Twist On The Traditional Walk
St. Petersburg, FL (May 31, 2014) – Joining in the fun of the runs and walks, My Hope Chest, the locally based, 501c3 breast cancer charity is adding spice to the mix! The 1st Annual Butterfly Glow Walk, 5K Fun Run and After Party will take flight on Pass-A-Grille Beach, Saturday, September 20th at 7pm.
The fundraising begins with supporters signing up their “Butterfly Teams” this summer to rally their support for My Hope Chest’s breast reconstruction program, which helps breast cancer survivors “transform” into “butterflies.” The charity event begins at dusk for an evening of exercise and fun along the gulf of Mexico. The party begins at the finish line with awards, music, food, competition games and libations at Hurley Park.
“My Hope Chest’s unique mission is a call to ‘ACTION’ honoring breast cancer Survivors focused on breast restoration, a little known aspect of the disease in need of much support.” said My Hope Chest founder, Alisa Savoretti. We are hoping Tampa Bay businesses, groups and individuals that have supported breast cancer walks in the past will join our crusade this year to help ‘finish’ for women what breast cancer had started.”
“We designed the ‘Butterfly gloWalk & 5K Fun Run!” outside the box of traditional walks and can’t wait to see “glowing” participants having fun for charity, at night, on the beach wearing “wings!” We are looking forward to a great turnout at our first annual event and party, raising funds and supporting our mission of ‘HAPPY’ and new beginnings for survivors!”
“Butterfly Team” registration will begin online early June.
My Hope Chest will share a portion of proceeds to support local bill pay organizations that help patients in treatment with non medical expenses.
