This month’s community non-profit spotlight will be focusing on the North Shore Cancer Walk. Summer is a great time to be getting in shape, and what better way to do that than by participating in a walk for cancer. You’ll be able to burn some of that pesky fat while also fighting for a good cause. Any and all funds for this walk will be used for a new surgical robot that will bring advanced technology for prostate cancer surgery as well as benefit oncology services at North Shore Medical Center and the Mass General/North Shore Cancer Center, such as clinical trials and wellness care.


It is known that there are various types of cancer that are spreading as we speak, but at the same time there are a number of professionals doing as much research as they can to make breakthroughs to create cures and lower the probability for the risk of cancer, and that’s where the community steps in to help. While you may not be a scientist, that doesn’t mean there’s no reason that you can’t stand up and make a difference. This walk is one of the many events that has been spreading the word for years and raising funds to bring advance technology, research and awareness to those around them.


Maybe you don’t have the time to get out and make this walk, we know that a lot of people have busy schedules and we respect that. That doesn’t mean that there aren’t other opportunities that you can take advantage of, such as donating online. Even the smallest amount can help in one of the biggest causes of suffering throughout the world. It’s not just your community that you’re helping, but it’s the world around you as well. Whether you know someone that’s battling or struggling with cancer or are struggling with it yourself, or even if you aren’t dealing with either of those, you can still find small ways to show your support.


This event will be taking place on June 24th at Salem Willows Park in Salem, MA. Registration will begin at 7:30AM along with team photos and the purchase of WALK wear.
