Soon, Joy to Life will once again welcomes thousands to its annual Walk of Life in downtown Montgomery! Save the date, Saturday, April 27th!
You may ask, what or who is Joy to Life? As described on the organization’s website, “The Joy to Life Foundation is a non-profit organization founded in 2001. Our mission is to provide free mammograms and other breast cancer screenings when necessary to medically underserved women in Alabama, provide limited grants when needed, build and support breast cancer awareness among all Alabamians, and promote over-all health, well-being, and education throughout the state.
There are thousands of women in the medically underserved community who need mammograms. Tragically, women die each year because they do not have the resources for early detection and cannot afford the necessary screening that they deserve. It was for this reason that the Joy to Life Foundation was created in 2001 by Joy Blondheim (a breast cancer survivor) and her husband, Dickie. The years since have been dedicated to those who are fighting to win the battle against breast cancer. “If we can reach these women early enough, lives can be saved,” states Joy.”
Festivities will kick off on Friday, April 26th at Riverwalk Stadium. This is where you’ll find the packet pickup expo during the day (more info to come), and that night join us to PINK OUT THE PARK with our Montgomery Biscuits! Walk of Life participants will receive a discount on game tickets.
