    2021 Georgia 2-Day Walk for Breast Cancer
    Oct 2 @ 7:00 am – Oct 3 @ 12:00 pm

    The Georgia 2-Day Walk for Breast Cancer is an annual fundraising endurance walk that takes place on October 2-3, 2021, 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 Georgia 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.

    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 Georgia 2-Day Walk for Breast Cancer has funded 431 grants totaling $16.5 million to support breast health programs throughout Georgia.
