Is Brooklyn ready for #LymphWalk?

We don't know if Brooklyn is ready. But we know Walkers for the 8th annual New York Walk to Fight Lymphedema & Lymphatic Diseases are excited to be closing in on the Walk's fundraising goal, while anticipating perfect early-fall weather as they walk the Brooklyn Bridge in a sea of teal.

If you are already signed up and fundraising, we have exciting news: LE&RN Honorary Board Member, actor Steve Guttenberg, will be kicking off the event. We will also be honoring Nicole Faccio for her ongoing activism at the state level, with honors presented by New York State Senator Martin J. Golden and New York State Assemblymember Linda B. Rosenthal. Darren Wennen, Vice President of Marketing Tactile Medical, will be given the 2017 LE&RN Impact Award.
