The 21st annual North Fork Breast Health Coalition "5K Walk for Breast Cancer Awareness" will be held on Sunday, September 22 at Tanger Outlet Center in Riverhead.

"The annual 5K walk at Tanger Outlets brings together breast cancer patients, survivors and thrivers, community members, elected officials and leaders in the breast cancer community," NFBHC Vice President Melanie McEvoy Zuhoski relayed. "Tanger has partnered with us on the walk for the past 21 years, and secures numerous gift baskets and other high-end items for the raffle."

News12 Long Island Meteorologist Rich Hoffman will host the opening ceremony, which commences at 8:45 a.m. Prior to that, registration will take place from 7:30 to 8:45 a.m., which is also when attendees can enjoy a continental breakfast, including bagels, muffins and fruit, and purchase raffle tickets for the exceptional prizes donated by Tanger Outlet stores. The "5K Walk for Breast Cancer Awareness" begins at 9 a.m.

"Proceeds from the walk help pay for the free services we offer to breast cancer patients as well as our Lend A Helping Hand grant program," McEvoy Zuhosk added.

The "5K Walk for Breast Cancer Awareness" registration fee is $30, however those that amass the top pledges of support will be fêted with something special. The North Fork Breast Health Coalition will recognize the top fundraisers in the Young Adult (ages 13-19 years old), Adult, Business/Team and Breast Cancer Survivor categories. Additionally, the first 300 participants will receive an official walk gift bag.

The North Fork Breast Health Coalition's mission is "to encourage and assist in the prevention, early intervention, and cure of breast cancer through advocacy, awareness, networking, and research. The funds we raise go directly to programs such as 'Lend a Helping Hand,' which provides grants to patients on the North Fork who are being treated for breast cancer."

Tanger Outlet Center is located 1770 West Main Street in Riverhead. For more information, visit www.northforkbreasthealth.org.
