The Just ‘Cause Walk was founded by a Healing Garden client and her friends who wanted the proceeds of their cancer walk to fund direct services for cancer clients as well as research.

In May 2011, the Just ‘Cause Walk topped the $1 million mark for cumulative funds raised! May 18-20, 2012 will be the 10th Just ‘Cause Walk, and we hope that, to help celebrate this milestone, many clients and supporters will participate.

Walkers needed!!!

The Healing Garden is one of two beneficiaries of the Just ‘Cause Walk and we depend on it for our survival! Unlike popular, heavily publicized walks, 100 percent of the funds raised by the Just ‘Cause Walk for the Healing Garden go directly to the support of local women with breast cancer, regardless of financial barriers. But we need your help.

How can I participate?

There are three ways you can join the Just ‘Cause Walk to help support the Garden:

Just ‘Cause 3-Day 60-mile walk

Feeling up for a challenge? Join other enthusiastic and energetic people ready for a challenge and walk the entire Just Cause 3-Day 60-mile walk on May 18, 19 and 20 to give your support.
