There are so many different ways to join the Atlanta 2-Day Walk for Breast Cancer! For some people, joining an existing 2-Day walking team is an easy way to jump into the excitement, fundraising, and training portions of the 2-Day Walk. But what if you’re a Rookie and don’t know anyone on an existing team? Not a problem!

First and foremost, you do not have to be a part of a team to participate in the 2-Day Walk. It’s The Journey’s
Chair of the Board, Laurel Sybilrud, who registers as an individual walker, enjoys the opportunity to meet and mingle with new people every year.

Greta and Sonia

Greta Wilson and Sonia met Q100 Bert Show host Bert Weiss at the 2016 Atlanta 2-Day Walk for Breast Cancer!

But what if you’re a Rookie or returning walker and want to start your own team? Awesome! A team can be as small as you and a friend, or as large as our biggest team from 2016- Breasta Fiesta- with over 80 people! 2-Day Walker Greta Wilson first was introduced to the 2-Day Walk when she ran into It’s The Journey Executive Director Kimberly Goff at her gym. Her mother had passed away due to breast cancer four years before, and when Kim told her about the 2-Day Walk, she knew she wanted to be a part of it.

During her first year, Greta had a friend join her on the route, but her friend was unable to return the following year. While walking on her own at the 2-Day Walk that next year, Greta met Sonia, and despite coming from totally different backgrounds, the two women became fast-friends! Now, they are a small but mighty team of 2, and look forward to hitting the route together in 2017!

If you would like to join an existing team from your area, simply call the office and we will be happy to help you find the right team or walking buddy! We can hook you up!
