This first -ever Northwell Walk in Westchester is co-sponsored by NWH and Phelps Hospital as part of a health system-wide walk in 4 locations on May 21st: Jones Beach, East End, Staten Island and Westchester.
Hundreds have signed up already to walk with Northern Westchester Hospital in support of the Bruce and Andrea Yablon Cancer Health and Wellness Program
Held at Franklin D. Roosevelt State Park in Yorktown on May 21, the two-mile family walk will be co-hosted by Northern Westchester Hospital and Phelps Hospital, both members of Northwell Health in Westchester County. Designed for all ages, the walk is wheelchair, stroller and pet friendly. On walk day, NWH will also host a wellness fair and fun activities for all participants. Hospital clinicians will provide screenings and demos, healthy eating tips, aromatherapy, hand massage, Body Mass Index (BMI) and blood pressure testing and more. Best of all, all funds raised during the walk will go directly to support the community hospitals.
"All money raised at the walk will stay in Westchester County," said Whitney Wasserman, development manager at the NWH Foundation, and an event organizer. NWH and Phelps are joining existing walks that are flagship events for Northwell Health. On the same day (May 21st), there will be other Northwell walks at Jones Beach, on the East End of Long Island and Staten Island. All of the funds raised from those walks are staying in the communities that the walks take place. “The tagline of the walk is ‘Four Walks, One Cause’ – We are truly coming together to make a difference for our family, friends and the healthcare of our community,” said Wasserman. The funds donated to Northern Westchester Hospital will go directly to the Bruce and Andrea Yablon Cancer Health and Wellness Program at NWH, which provides free services to cancer patients during and after treatment.
