Port Canaveral, FLA., August 12, 2019 – The Cove Merchants Association, a non-profit organization whose primary goal is to market local businesses in Port Canaveral, announces the “11TH ANNIVERSARY PINK RIBBON WALK AT PORT CANAVERAL.”
Cancer Care Centers of Brevard is the presenting sponsor of this fun, family-oriented event, which is expected to draw over 300 walkers. Come out and enjoy a walk for a cause where the benefits stay right here in Brevard County.
The 11th Anniversary Pink Ribbon Walk at Port Canaveral will be hosted Saturday, October 5, 2019, at Exploration Tower, from 7 to 10 a.m. in The Cove at Port Canaveral, 670 Dave Nisbet Drive, Cape Canaveral, FL. A $25 donation per walker is all it takes to be part of this great cause. Walkers will receive a T-shirt and a participation medal. Cancer survivors are invited to join in a special recognition ceremony and butterfly release, beginning at 8:50 am.
Michael Schwarz, event chair and owner of Fishlips Waterfront Bar & Grill, said, “It is an honor to be part of the 11th annual Pink Ribbon Walk. Bringing together the support of the local community, businesses, walkers, and survivors continue to make a difference in the lives of cancer patients and their families in Brevard County. In the past ten years of the Pink Ribbon Walk, we have raised over $200,000. I encourage everyone to register to walk and show your support.”
Individuals and teams are welcome. First, second, and third place awards will be given for Most Funds Raised, Best Dressed Team and Best Dressed Individual. The route will take walkers and runners through several waterfront properties, and return them to The Cove for an awards ceremony and post-walk refreshments.
Funds raised from this event will stay in Brevard County to aid patients undergoing treatment and will be distributed through Florida Cancer Specialists Foundation.
