For the last four years, the CSI Breast Cancer Walkathon has brought together the entire borough of Staten Island, as well as students, alumni, staff, friends, and families of the CSI community, to raise awareness and funds for the Staten Island Breast Cancer Research Initiative (SIBCRI).
Directed by Dr. Donna B. Gerstle, Professor and Director of CSI’s Center for Environmental Science, the SIBCRI is a multidisciplinary approach aimed at making a positive impact on breast cancer incidence and mortality on Staten Island and beyond.
Since its inception, the Walkathon has been symbolic for SIBCRI supporters, as it provides them with a setting to gather with family and friends, and unite under the mission to spread awareness and eradicate this life-altering disease.
The two-kilometer Walkathon will take place on Saturday, Oct. 11 on the CSI campus. Registration and sessions begin at 9:00am on the Great Lawn, the Walkathon begins at 10:00am.
Join us for group yoga and zumba before and after the Walkathon. Hand-knitted scarves, blankets, and other items, lovingly crafted by supportive community groups across the country, will be available for purchase.
The registration fee for walkers is $25 and includes an SIBCRI t-shirt, water bottle, and totebag. All contributions are tax deductible.
Registration for CSI students with a valid Dolphin Card is free. The first 150 registered students will receive a Student Health Kit with a SIBCRI t-shirt. Student Health Kits are provided by the CSI Campus Activities Board (CAB).
