The annual Ribbon Walk for Cancer is a signature fundraising event of Cape Fear Valley Health Foundation. Since 2006, funds raised through the Ribbon Walk have helped cancer patients in need of receiving treatment at Cape Fear Valley Cancer Centers in our region. Funds raised support mammography outreach, gas and wig vouchers, medication assistance, emergency rent and utility assistance, and therapeutic programs.
The event takes place at Festival Park. Opening ceremonies will start at 8:45, with special recognition of cancer survivors during the "kick-off" Survivor Lap.
Participants can walk the designated one-mile or 5K route through beautiful downtown Fayetteville as individuals, but are encouraged to participate as a family or team. This walk is not timed. Four-legged supporters are not allowed in Festival Park, but may walk the route leashed. This is a family-friendly event.
