Hello my name is Tanja Thompson and I am the CEO/Founder of the Breast Cancer Move Foundation a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.
I am a 2x breast cancer survivor...I'm not only a survivor but a THRIVER in this journey we call life. You know why...THERE IS LIFE AFTER CANCER!!!!
I know 1st hand how the small things make a difference in life such as a care package, being able to pay chemotherpy and radiation treatment co-pays almost $75 a visit.
The significance of June 20, 2020, is that it is the longest day of the year and what an awesome day to shine light on a disease that has affected so many people; men, women, young, and old. On this day and next 30 days, we make an impact in supporting and participating in the "Shining Light on Breast Cancer” 5k walk/run.
Participants will finish their race via walk, run, treadmill of any other social distancing means that shines the light on breast cancer. Funds raised will go to support care packages & medical treatment assistance.
The dates of the event is June 20 - July 19, 2020 with primary race day July 11, 2020. The sun raises and set every day and what a powerful message that on this day, we made an impact in supporting and participating in the "Shining Light on Breast Cancer" fundraiser.
