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.

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.
