The opening ceremony includes an inspirational tribute to the breast cancer survivors in attendance with a traditional balloon release.
Breast Cancer Survivors lead off the walk at 8:00 a.m. under a beautiful balloon arch, crossing Tegner Street, turning east on Frontier Street and out Simpson Ranch Road for up to 1.75 miles before returning by the same route. Participants may choose to turn after .5 miles for a 1 mile route if they so desire. (Special Note: Those completing the 1 mile route are usually finished by 8:30 and still have time to attend their local church services.)
All participants are encouraged to complete the route by passing under the arch at Ortega Park, where they will be cheered by local cheerleaders and provided with a breakfast bar (donated by Basha's).
At 9:00 a.m. in the parking lot, please stay for a short closing presentation. Door prizes will be awarded as well as a prize for the theme's contest winner (must be present to win).
Police will provide assistance along the route and there are water stations (bottled water donated by UMB) and porta-potties available. Leashed dogs are welcome on the walk; please use poop bags (provided) as needed.
Join the fun!
