The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
Join the Journey is dedicated to promoting breast cancer awareness and supporting individuals on their breast cancer journey.
Join the Journey was founded in 2005. Effie Psimos and Patty Allen, breast cancer survivors, and close friend Margie Loprinzi, came together with the hope of raising awareness of breast cancer in Rochester, Minnesota.
Before long, Join the Journey had its first Ten-Mile Breast Cancer Awareness Walk. The community response was tremendous, and participation grows each year. In 2014, nearly 1,000 people participated!
Join the Journey has evolved into an established non-profit community organization, which supports programs and projects that uphold its mission of promoting breast cancer awareness and supporting individuals on their breast cancer journey.
If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with breast cancer, Join the Journey was created to help you. We will provide you with information, support and fellowship. You are not alone; we are here to help.
