What is the Survivor Walk?

Don’t worry … no running shoes needed! The Survivor Walk kicks off Opening Ceremonies with a short parade (stroll) of cancer survivors walking from the back of the Convention Center to the front while the crowd cheers. (Survivors should be there by 9:45am to participate.) Survivors make the short walk as a group to "Gonna Fly Now,” the theme song from Rocky! Participants often tell us this is a powerful and emotional time of celebrating life and feeling connected to the community. For many, this annual event is a milestone marker of celebration.
