Thousands of participants and survivors across the Inland Empire will lace up their walking shoes for the Virtual Believe Walk, presented by Stater Bros. Charities and Inland Women Fighting Cancer, on Sunday, Oct. 4. Out of an abundance of caution due to Covid-19, the annual fundraising walk, which had taken place in-person in downtown Redlands for the previous 12 years, has shifted to virtual this year.
“The way we gather for the Believe Walk may look and feel different this year but our mission remains the same: to care for cancer patients in our community. We are committed to raising critical funds that support programs and services at local cancer-fighting organizations in the Inland Empire. Cancer doesn’t take a break, neither will we,” said Nancy Negrette, Chairman and President, Stater Bros. Charities.
A live virtual kick-off event will be livestreamed Sunday, October 4 at 9 a.m. on Facebook @believewalk and BelieveIE.com. The program will include entertainment, raffle prizes, survivor stories, and announcements of contest winners and top fundraising teams/fundraisers.
The Believe Walk community and its generous supporters play a critical role in advancing cancer care and support services in our local communities. Believe Walk proceeds will benefit cancer centers, programs and support services for cancer patients, survivors, and their families in the Inland Empire.
