2017 Stop the Silence Walk

Platinum Divas

Welcome to Platinum Divas Incorporated Team Fundraising Page!  You have come to the right place.

Platinum Divas Incorporated is proud to announce we will be participating as a TEAM in the 8th Annual Sisters Network Stop the Silence 5K Walk/Run for 2017!  The walk will be held at 9am, Saturday, April 8th, 2017, on the campus of University of Houston at Lynn Eusan Park, 4800 Calhoun, Houston, TX 77004. This is a new location for this year's walk.

In 2017, it's estimated that among U.S. women there will be 252,710 new cases of invasive breast cancer and 40,610 breast cancer deaths!

Breast cancer in men is rare, but it does happen. In 2017, it's estimated that among U.S. men there will be 2,470 new cases and 460 breast cancer deaths.

From 1989-2014, breast cancer mortality decreased by 38 percent (avoiding about 300,000 deaths). This decline in mortality is due to improved breast cancer treatment and early detection.

Whether you are a breast cancer survivor or you know someone who has been diagnosed with this horrible disease, unfortunately, breast cancer has affected most, if not all, of us in some way. Please help us as we raise funds and awareness for the Sisters Network, Inc. Stop the Silence National African American Breast Cancer Walk that raises funds for the Sisters Network Breast Cancer Awareness Program (BCAP).

A portion of the funds raised from this event provides assistance to breast cancer survivors, currently in treatment and facing financial challenges.  Financial Assistance is paid directly to third party providers and covers hospital/clinic/physician and medical group; medical related lodging, medical insurance, co-pay, rent and utilities. BCAP is also an early detection program which provides free Mammograms, Ultrasounds and Biopsies.

If you have never participated in the Sisters Network Stop the Silence Walk before, or are looking for a team to walk with, please JOIN OUR TEAM TODAY. The registration fee is $35. We are asking every team member to commit to raising $250. Get your friends, family, colleagues, co-workers & church members to donate on your behalf to reach your personal fundraising goal.
