The Gal to Gal Walk is a virtual walk created by the Gal to Gal Foundation. Created by Jeanne Fitzmaurice, Carrie Dederich, and Elizabeth Salant, the Gal to Gal Foundation’s goal is to provide women diagnosed with Stage IV Breast Cancer the support they need as they battle the disease, providing resources and granting wishes.
To join the virtual walk, participants need just to register and donate only $5 to the foundation. Donations may also be made without joining the walk. When you register you will have the opportunity to create a virtual walker who will represent you online. Check out the virtual Amy Lupold Bair to the left.
To learn more about who this year’s walk is honoring, please watch this video in memory of past Gal to Gal Foundation President, Dorit Shapiro. You can also learn more about wishes that have been granted and wishes to be granted this holiday season.
