The third annual Walk Her Way 5K is a walk/run fundraiser with a goal to raise $150,000 in support of Compassion House Foundation.
Participants can register either as an individual or a team, fundraise in advance, then complete a 5km walk during the virtual event period of May 11-31st, 2023. Check out our Participant Guide for more details!
Walk Her Way 5K is about stepping into her shoes in a symbolic show of solidarity. Dedicate your fundraiser to a woman in your life affected by cancer, wherever she is in her cancer journey, or in memory of a loved one who has since passed.
NOW BEING HELD VIRTUALLY FROM MAY 11 – 31ST!
Walk Her Way 5K raises critical funding for Compassion House Foundation, helping to ease the distress of the cancer journey for women through Sorrentino’s Compassion House, post-treatment programs, financial support, and reliable operations. Proceeds from the event will be used towards the greatest area of need at the time.
Your support helps women battling cancer find comfort, connection, and community during a time when they need it most.
Join us as we step into her shoes and Walk Her Way to help ease the distress of the cancer journey for women.
