The Long Island 2 Day Walk to Fight Breast Cancer takes walkers on an inspirational two-day, 35-mile journey through picturesque Suffolk County.
Day One of the LI2Day Walk
The walk, beginning early Saturday morning, at Smith Point County Park, takes place on scenic and secure Suffolk County roads, with full support from the Suffolk County Police Department, as well as local hospitals and ambulance companies. Rest stops, providing food, drinks, entertainment, goodies, first-aid, and port-a-lavs, are located along the route at two-mile intervals.
To celebrate the 10-mile mark, lunch will be provided for walkers at Southaven Park. Volunteers and crewmembers will be on hand to offer encouragement and support along the way. Family members are invited to cheer their loved ones on at designated locations along the route.
Victory Village at Cathedral Pines represents the 20-mile mark, where walkers will be welcomed by podiatrists, medical aid, chiropractors, physical trainers, and massage therapists. Upon their arrival at Victory Village, walkers will find a fully equipped campsite, complete with assembled tents, their own gear/personal items delivered by UPS, snacks, and entertainment. Walkers will also enjoy dinner at the campsite, catered and served by Carrabba's Italian Grill of Smithtown.
On Sunday, walkers will wake early for a hearty breakfast before embarking on their journey back to Smith Point County Park. Along the 15-mile route, all of the comforts of the previous day will be available, including lunch at the Smith Point Marina, located ¼-mile north of Smith Point County Park. Walkers who reach this point early can relax with entertainment, massages, and podiatrist services as they anticipate the arrival of all of the walkers.
Celebration of Life's Victories - Final Procession
Breast cancer survivors, who are not walking in the event, are invited to join walkers on Sunday for lunch at Smith Point Marina and Closing Ceremony. Together, walkers and survivors will cross Smith Point Bridge at 1:00 P.M. in an emotional ending to a very special weekend.
