Armsby Abbey & Umass Cancer Walk 9/24

Team Image

Armsby Abbey has once again chosen to take part in the 19th Annual UMass Medicine Cancer Walk & Run to help fundraise and support the ongoing research and clinical trials program at the UMass Medicine Cancer Center here in Worcester, MA. In 2016 our team raised over $12,000; this year we hope to raise even more!

Cancer is a disease that has permeated the lives of us all. For those of us at Armsby Abbey, our family, clientele & loved ones have been affected by breast, skin, lung, colon, esophageal, testicular, blood, brain, pancreatic, cervical and uterine cancers. Some are in remission, some are still fighting and some we have lost. For those who have won their battle, we will walk. For those who continue to fight, we will walk. For those who have lost their battle, we will walk; for those who will one day fight, we will walk.

There is great power in numbers and we think Armsby Abbey has the ability to reach a lot of people to help raise funds for UMass Medicine’s Cancer Center within our local community.

If you would like to join our team to help us fundraise, as a thank you, we will give you a complimentary $30 Armsby Abbey gift card & team t-shirt to walk with us on September 24th.
