In 2002 four friends — Jo Edmunds, Tina Flaherty, Sarah Mitchell, and Noreen Beck — committed to making a difference in the movement to fight breast cancer and began a special venture together. They created a fundraising walk for breast cancer that would be entirely volunteer run; a walk that would give every dollar raised directly to breast cancer research, treatment and support. The funds raised are divided, at the donor’s preference, between the Massachusetts General Hospital Center for Breast Cancer and the Virginia Healing Garden in Harvard.
