Join us on October 19, 2019 for the inaugural For Pete's Sake, Walk! at MCU Park!
At For Pete's Sake, Walk! we walk beside cancer survivors and their caregivers, and we honor those who have lost their battle with the disease. We share beautiful moments of hope and reflection, and create memories with our family and friends.
We celebrate relationships at For Pete's Sake, Walk! Our relationships are what get us through our darkest days, and the struggles of a cancer diagnosis can bring us closer.
Enjoy a day filled with moments that will create memories! kids and adults alike will love a visit from some of New York's favorite mascots! After the walk, enjoy face painting, dance to music, and turn into a superhero to help families fight cancer! Our walk will take us around the bases at MCU Park where teams will pose for a keepsake photo. The walk route is fun for all ages -- and will be filled with activities and surprises to take a break and create memories!
Together, we will transform lives by giving people a break from cancer and empowering them with emotional resources to cope and carry on. Take a break and walk with us, to help families take a break from cancer!
P.S. Come for the walk, stay for the fun!
For those who are able, we invite you to visit Coney Island Brewery after the walk to enjoy a drink and help raise more funds to support For Pete's Sake. Coney Island Brewery will donate $1.00 from every Mermaid Pilsner or Beach Beer purchased on Saturday, October 19, up to a $250.00 donation.
Check out our event information page for some activites you can enjoy after the walk is over on Coney Island!
For Pete's Sake, Walk! benefits For Pete's Sake Cancer Respite Foundation. We address the psychosocial and emotional needs of the young adult cancer patient population and their loved ones. Working with oncology professionals at over 100 hospitals and cancer centers, we provide transformative respite experiences to cancer patients (ages 24-55), their caregivers and their children. We offer our families emotional support that assists them as their journey with cancer continues. Our program helps families recognize it is love, not cancer that defines them.
