8th annual New York Walk to Fight Lymphedema & Lymphatic Diseases, Sunday, September 17, 2017

On Sunday, September 17, hundreds of activists and fundraisers will come together at the base of the Brooklyn Bridge in Cadman Plaza Park to raise awareness and money for lymphedema and lymphatic disease education, research, and advocacy.

Registration tables will open at 9am; water and snacks provided. Companies who provide products and services to the lymphedema (LE) and lymphatic disease (LD) communities will be on hand for product demonstrations and information gathering. A line-up of speakers will talk about the progress being made and the obstacles faced by the community.

Nicole Faccio, the New York Walk’s top fundraiser last year, will be honored for her ongoing activism and will be the event’s keynote speaker.
