Service of Remembrance at Citizens Bank Park

As part of our FPS, Walk! join us Sunday morning for Palm Sunday liturgy at Citizens Bank Park as we remember our loved ones who have and are facing cancer. Monsignor Mike Mannion, the celebrant from our founder Pete’s Mass of Remembrance, will lead the on-field service promptly at 7:45 am. People of all faiths welcome!

Cancer touches each of us uniquely so let us raise our voices in song and prayer to show our solidarity of support for loved ones facing this disease. Following the service, enjoy FPS, Walk! festivities, including an Easter egg scavenger hunt, physical fitness challenge, balloon pop, great food and music, and our infamous ring pops and peanut chews during the concourse stroll. Gates open at 7:30 am for those wanting to participate in the service and 9:00 am for general walk admission. Registration is $30 for adults 19 and older, $20 for students 12-18 year olds, $10 for 5-11 year olds and FREE for 4 and under.  Click here for more info about the walk.

NEW THIS YEAR! Leaders for Love is Greater Than Cancer is an extension of our FPS, Walk! outreach aimed at encouraging Philadelphia business leaders to be a part of our advocacy and advancement efforts as we encourage both walk participation and support at our annual walk at Citizens Bank Park on April 14, 2019. Each business leader is requested to raise a minimum of $2,500 in donations and/or team support for the Walk. With a theme of Families Facing Cancer Should Never Walk Alone, having the support of local Philadelphia business leaders not only raises support for our respite mission, it allows for rallying community encouragement for families facing cancer at this juncture. Thus, business leader support has three goals: raising funds, promoting advocacy and building community! We invite you to join the Leaders For Love is Greater Than Cancer initiative and help us change lives today, one smile at a time!
