Atlanta 2-Day Walk for Breast Cancer

November 11-12, 2017

 The Atlanta 2-Day Walk for Breast Cancer is an annual fundraising endurance walk that takes place on November 11-12, 2017, and takes participants through 30 miles of Atlanta over the course of 2 days. Last year, nearly 1,000 walkers committed to fundraising and training for this event.

The Atlanta 2-Day Walk for Breast Cancer’s founder, Randi Passoff, began the 2-Day Walk in 2002 when the Avon 3-Day Walk faced financial difficulty and pulled out of Atlanta. Randi’s goal was to create a fundraising event where money raised stayed right in the communities of the participants. We call the 2-Day “the kinder and gentler breast cancer walk” because we strive to include passionate individuals at different levels of physical and fundraising ability- walkers can walk all 30 miles, or just choose to walk 10 miles on one day.

In 2016, over $1 million was raised from the Atlanta 2-Day Walk for Breast Cancer! With the money from the walk, It’s The Journey, Inc. is able to fund grants that serve over 100 counties in Georgia. These programs provide mammograms, clinical breast exams, genetic counseling and testing, biopsies, support services, education, and much more. Many of our grants have a specific focus on under-served individuals in our community- uninsured and under-insured women for whom these types of breast health measures are often not available.

Since 2002, the Atlanta 2-Day Walk for Breast Cancer has funded 298 grants totaling $13 million to support breast health programs throughout Georgia. Our motto is “What’s raised in Georgia stays in Georgia.”

    Sunday walker’s,, if it’s a group,, do each individual have too pay $100 for registration and raise the $500?? How does this work??

  4. Whitney Pack says:

    Hi Detoria,

    Yes, each person is responsible for his/her registration fee (for Sunday Walkers that includes breakfast on Sunday, transportation back to the Marriott after Closing Ceremonies, hydration, snacks, and medical attention along the route, and your Victory t-shirt), and raising $500. The registration fee purely covers expenses, and the fundraising requirement is how the 2-Day Walk funds our grants for breast health and breast cancer programs throughout the state. We actually have a Sunday Walker registration discount now through September 11- use code “LABORDAY17” when registering and receive $25 off! Call the office if you have questions! 404.531.4111.
