Description

 

First launched in April 2010, the Sisters Network Inc. Stop the Silence National African American Breast Cancer 5K Walk/Run is the first and only national breast cancer walk hosted by a black-led organization for black women. The walk is hosted in April to draw attention to National Minority Health Awareness month.

Over the last 14 years, more than 5,000 participants from around the United States travel to Houston, Texas annually to honor and celebrate black women diagnosed with breast cancer. A portion of the funds raised from the Stop the Silence walk benefits Sisters Network Inc. Karen E. Jackson Breast Cancer Assistance Program (BCAP). The national program pays for 3D mammograms for uninsured women and provides financial assistance to breast cancer survivors who are currently in treatment.

About Breast Cancer Assistance Program (BCAP):

 

Established in 2006, Sisters Network® Inc. Breast Cancer Assistance Program (BCAP) is a national financial assistance program for breast cancer survivors in active treatment. The program also has an early detection component providing mammograms for underserved and uninsured women.  


The Breast Cancer Assistance Program was renamed Karen E. Jackson Breast Cancer Assistance Program in recognition and honor of the Founder's legacy in the fight against breast cancer.


The BCAP has provided nearly $1.5 million dollars in financial assistance and mammograms for thousands of women since its inception. 

 

A portion of the funds raised from the annual Stop the Silence 5K Walk/Run help support the Breast Cancer Assistance Program each year. 

 

The program is open twice a year in the Spring and Fall.
