Avon Walk for Breast Cancer: New York
October 17 - 18, 2015
We are already preparing for our 2015 Event weekend. Please stay tuned for Route, Hotel, Event Eve, Opening & Closing Ceremony and Wellness Village site announcements as they are finalized and confirmed.
For reference, our 2014 Event Sites and Route were as follows:
Walking from Pier 84 to Randall’s Island and Back Again
The walk route to and from Hudson River Park's Pier 84 and Wellness Village consisted mostly of sidewalks and city streets. There were also times when the route took the Walkers through some of New York’s beloved parks and and popular shared use recreational paths.
The beauty of the Hudson River and the city skyline served as the incredible backdrop during our Opening Ceremony at Pier 84. Throughout the walk weekend, our Walkers experienced all the best that New York has to offer. The route brought them into some of Manhattan’s most well-known neighborhoods including Chelsea, Greenwich Village, and Soho. They journeyed over the majestic Brooklyn Bridge and made their way into the DUMBO area of Brooklyn, before heading back into Manhattan. After the Walkers had a taste of “all the best” in New York on Saturday, they reached our Wellness Village –at the one of kind Randall’s Island!
Sunday’s route brought the Walkers back through the streets of New York and past more of the iconic sights and sounds of this great city. They ended triumphant right back where they started at Pier 84 for the Closing Ceremony.
