A Record Breaking Year for the For Pete’s Sake Walk!

 In News

On Sunday, April 28, 2024, we held our 13th Annual For Pete’s Sake Walk! in Philadelphia at Citizens Bank Park. It was truly a beautiful day, marked by excellent weather and the celebration of our community supporting FPS Families at the For Pete’s Sake Walk!

We successfully reached our fundraising goal and celebrated a new milestone: over 2,000 people Striding For Respite, setting a record for Wallk attendance! These accomplishments would not have been possible without the collective effort of every single participant. Thank you to all who attended for ensuring that no family facing cancer walks alone! We are grateful to our loyal and dedicated supporters, including our Team Captains and individual fundraisers. Also, to our over 150 volunteers – who we could not done this without!

We encourage you to watch this video of highlights from the day!
