About Us

We are a dedicated group of individuals who raise money to fund research and access to care for breast cancer. The Walk to Battle Breast Cancer brings participants together to complete a 13-mile walk in and around Washington, DC. Walking Warriors are committed to end breast cancer. We fund research to improve treatment, investigate and prevent breast cancer and provide assistance to those living with breast cancer in Maryland, DC and Virginia. We will not stop walking until we can prevent and cure breast cancer. Visit wwbbc.org to learn how you can become a Warrior by walking, donating or volunteering. Our next walk is Saturday, May 4, 2024, at 7:30 a.m.

Walking Warriors Impact

  • In 2019, Walking Warriors had 75 dedicated walkers who raised over $110,000. Together with a match from Lombardi Women, the total raised was more than $135,000.
  • In 2020, though the pandemic canceled the walk, the group was able to raise $40,000 in donations.
  • Our 2021 Walk was held virtually due to the pandemic. Our 46 walkers did a grand job of getting out there, walking the miles, bringing awareness to our cause and raising over $68,500.
  • In 2022, we raised over $67,000.
  • In 2023, we exceeded our $100,000 goal to raise $110,000

Help us raise the bar even higher this year!
