Traveling for Care?
Whether you're crossing the country or the globe, we make it easy to access world-class care at Johns Hopkins.
The 12th annual Avon Walk for Breast Cancer, held the first weekend in May, attracted 2,000 participants and raised $4.5 million. The event, held in Washington D.C., is a 39.3 mile walk raising awareness and funds for breast cancer. The Johns Hopkins Team, In it to End it, walkers led by Deborah Stewart, R.N, raised more than $104,000 this year.
Johns Hopkins received a $600,000 grant to support research at the SKCCC’s Breast Cancer Program and patient navigation at the Johns Hopkins Avon Breast Center, and Johns Hopkins Bayview.

Kudos to our faculty and staff at Sibley Memorial Hospital, who served in the medical tent during the two-day event, taking care of walker injuries and needs.
