Making Strides of Long Island - Jones Beach Breast Cancer Walk
Join members of the Adelphi Community together as you walk to raise awareness and fund to beat cancer.
Transportation is provided from the Ruth S. Harley University Center on Adelphi’s Garden City Campus at 7:00 am and will return to campus around 11:00 am. Tickets are $2.00 with all proceeds going to Relay for Life.
Tickets can be purchased on University Tickets.
At Jones Beach, participants can start the walk from any point on the boardwalk and still walk the entire route. This ensures that you will finish your walk exactly where you parked.
We all walk together, but our event is not a race. Stop whenever you want or need to. You absolutely do not need to complete the entire walk if you are unable. The walk concludes when the final walker crosses the finish line.
Visit the Pink Product Stores on Walk Day to get all of your Making Strides gear. Cash and Credit are accepted!
For Survivors, Previvors, Thrivers and Caregivers
It is important to note that the American Cancer Society defines a survivor as anyone who has heard the words “you have cancer”, so if you are recently diagnosed, currently going through treatment, or are in remission, this tent is for you!
Survivors, Thrivers, and Previvors check-in at the Pink Survivor Tent when you arrive at Field 5. We highly encourage survivors to sign-up online before the event. The survivor area is a special area for survivors and the caregivers attending with them. We include both survivors and caregivers to make sure everyone is as comfortable as possible. You’ll find important information about American Cancer Society programs and services geared specifically for you. In addition you can receive your complimentary 2022 survivor shirt and medals.
Health & Safety
If you are feeling sick or have been recently exposed to someone who recently tested positive for COVID-19, you should stay home. People who have underlying health conditions or taking medications that weaken the immune system, should talk to their healthcare provider before attending large gatherings.
