Make a Difference During the Wendy Walk in NYC

Mar 30, 2012 02:38PM

On April 29, the Wendy Walk will be held at 11am in New York City’s Central Park. The walk is the brainchild of Matt, Ali and Jackie Landes who wanted to support their mother, Wendy, when she was diagnosed with liposarcoma, a rare form of cancer, three years ago.. Funds are raised by those who sponsor the walkers; last year, more than $225,000 was raised during the walk and used for a unique and exciting international cooperative research study on liposarcoma through the Liddy Shriver Sarcoma Initiative. Participants in New York are invited to join the Landes family in a complementary brunch following the walk.

This year, with your help, Wendy’s family and friends hope to fund another liposarcoma research grant. Their efforts in Los Angeles, New York and Miami provide an opportunity to make a difference for thousands of people around the world. The three 2012 Wendy Walks are expected to draw over 1,500 people from across the country. Additionally, the Wendy Walks will be professionally filmed, and an official Wendy Walk documentary will be created.
