We are a dedicated group of individuals who raise money to fund research and access to care for breast cancer. The Walk to Battle Breast Cancer brings participants together to complete either a 10-mile or 20-mile walk in and around Washington, DC. As its own 501(c)(3), Walking Warriors Battling Breast Cancer is composed of team members who plan and lead their training routes — all to support research and community programs at Georgetown Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center.

Walking Warriors Impact
In 2019, Walking Warriors had 75 dedicated walkers who raised over $110,000. Together with a match from Lombardi Women, the total raised was more than $135,000. In 2020, though the pandemic canceled the walk, the group was able to raise $40,000 in donations. Our 2021 Walk was held virtually due to the pandemic. Our 46 walkers did a grand job of getting out there, walking the miles, bringing awareness to our cause and raising over $68,500. Help us raise the bar even higher this year!
Walking Warriors funds support:
– A junior research faculty grant to investigate metastatic breast cancer prevention and treatment
– Georgetown Lombardi’s Capital Breast Care Center for patient navigation to education, screening and treatment services
