Please join us for the 7th Annual Wendy Walk to support sarcoma research, a rare and incurable cancer. Over 4,000 people will gather in four metropolitan cities, Miami, New York, Park City and Los Angeles to support and raise awareness for sarcoma and walk together to wipe out this rare cancer that sadly affected the life of Wendy Landes, sister to Michael and Stephanie Rosen from Hibiscus Island, Miami Beach. The event will mark the three-year anniversary of the end of Wendy’s brave 4.5 year battle. The Miami walk will kick off the official 2016 Wendy Walk season. This year’s walk follows two inspirational fitness events, the first was hosted by Miami Country Day School students at Flywheel Sports Miami Beach on February 27, and the most recent event was a fitness festival taking at the Grove shopping center in Los Angeles on March 6. As teaser to the walk, the Rosen Family will host a special and delicious sold-out, pop up dinner at their home on April 9th.
Who: Thousands of supporters from across the United States – including patients and survivors – all committed to taking action in the fight against sarcoma, a rare and incurable cancer.
What: On April 17, participants will walk together in a 5K around Hibiscus and Palm Island. The Wendy Walk was named after and created for Wendy Landes. The Wendy Walk was founded in 2010, by Ali, 29, Matt, 29, and Jackie Landes, 24, in order to help raise awareness and proactively support their mom in her battle with Liposarcoma. Wendy’s relatives Michael, Stephanie, Kayla, Sierra, and Alec Rosen chair the Miami Beach event.
