More than a thousand supporters are expected at the upcoming 20th Annual Walk For Beauty on Sunday, October 20, 2013.

The benefit raises funds for cancer research at Stony Brook University as well as assistance for cancer patients who are treated at Stony Brook University Cancer Center. The walk which is co-sponsored by Stony Brook Medicine and the Ward Melville Heritage Organization, has raised more than $1 million since its start in 1994.

"The Walk for Beauty has helped thousands of patients by providing prostheses and wigs to those in need," said Gloria Rocchio, President of the Ward Melville Heritage Organization and event co-chair. "These seed grants resulted in eight additional grants from national organizations totaling over $7 million."

This year's walk will honor breast cancer survivor Janet Taormina of Patchogue, who was diagnosed at Stony Brook University Cancer Center in 2010. It will also honor Jim Condron, Vice President and Market Manager of WALK AM/FM Radio, and Leah S. Dunaief, Editor and Publisher of the Times Beacon Record newspapers.

The Walk for Beauty includes a 4K and 6K option, and pre-registration is currently open. The entry fee is $25 per person, and Stony Brook University students can walk for $10 per person. The walk is dog friendly with a $5 entry fee, the cost of a pink bandana.
