30WALK began with a promise from breast cancer survivor Karlie Saumier, to her daughter Sophie, that she would do all she could to ensure that Sophie would not have to worry about a breast cancer diagnosis in her lifetime. 30WALK’s PiNKiE PROMiSE developed out of that promise since fall 2009.
30WALK’s PiNKiE PROMISE raises awareness in our community on how to lower the risk of a breast cancer diagnosis for ourselves and our families by supporting a healthy lifestyle, exercising at least 30 minutes every day, encouraging healthy eating options for our families, maintaining ideal weight, offering opportunities that help us “WAIST – Away” and food challenges that engage our family in stepping out on an adventure of finding new vegetables and fruits for weekly meals, explore health related challenges and friendly reminders to GET THOSE MAMMOGRAMS!
Our children hold within them the substance of dreams and a belief that all things are possible! We try to harness that bravery and positive reassurance every moment we are fighting.
