Survivors

Race day is an opportunity to show survivors how much they are loved, cherished and respected. Be one of over one hundred survivors to take part. You will be able to identify yourself as a breast cancer survivor when you register for the Race. Please check Survivor box on the Registration Form.

SURVIVORS ACTIVITIES

On Race day, we recognize our survivors for their bravery. Breast cancer survivors are invited to wear a pink cap and T-shirt on Race Day. Breast cancer survivors may pick up their complimentary survivor shirt at the registration tent.

As a tribute to survivors and those lost to breast cancer, “In Memory Of” and “In Celebration Of” back signs are a wonderful way to honor friends and loved ones. They will be available at T-shirt pick-up and on Race Day.

On Race day our survivors enjoy time together in our beachfront survivor tent hosted with a special “White glove service” by the Nassau Chapter of the Links, Incorporated. Survivors are treated to a light breakfast, manicures and pedicure spa services provided by xyz and may collect a special goody bag after the start of the Race.

Each survivor is awarded a survivors Race medal and invited to participate in a special survivor ceremony.

SURVIVORS CEREMONY

It is always a moving moment as our survivors walked through the crowd to take their position on-stage serenaded by a combined choir made up of the best voices in the country

Co-SURVIVORS

No one should face breast cancer alone. Co-survivors play a critical role in helping people with breast cancer, whether they are recently diagnosed or have already completed treatment, and well into Survivorship. Co-survivors can be friends, spouses, pastors, family members, co-workers or neighbors, who do any number of things, large and small, to assist people dealing with breast cancer.

On Race day, each survivor is given two pink roses. She or he keeps one for him or herself and presents the other pink rose to their co-survivor.
