Join Burke & Herbert Bank in Supporting the virtual Walk to Bust Cancer

Burke & Herbert Bank is sponsoring the National Breast Center Foundation’s virtual Walk to Bust Cancer during October to show support for National Breast Cancer Awareness Month and help individuals throughout our community. According to the National Breast Center Foundation, our region has the HIGHEST incidence and mortality from breast cancer in the nation. The Bank will be promoting awareness of this critical cause in its branches and on its media channels throughout the month.

While in prior years the Walk to Bust Cancer took place on the last Sunday in October, this year’s walk is virtual. To maintain social distancing and walker safety, individuals or small teams can register and walk on their own at a place and day of their choosing prior to October 25. For details on how you can support this important cause, please visit walktobustcancer.org.

To create additional visibility for the walk and the cause, the National Breast Center Foundation’s Angel Wall, created by a past cancer survivor, will be displayed at locations throughout Alexandria. The angel wings featured on the Wall have become a symbol of victory and hope. We were pleased to have the Angel Wall outside of the Main Office in Old Town, Alexandria on October 14.
