Annual Champions Fighting Cancer Walk
Our largest fundraiser. Each year since 2000, on the first Sunday in May, the Foundation has partnered with Signature Healthcare Foundation (Brockton Hospital) and held an Annual Champions Fighting Cancer Walk. Men and women, children and seniors, businesses and clubs come together and walk across Brockton to raise money to fight cancer in our community. To date the Walk has raised nearly THREE million dollars for cancer support!
