“virtual” history when they launch their interactive virtual walk to benefit the
Gal to Gal Foundation, the non-profit organization dedicated to raising funds
and awareness for Stage IV breast cancer patients and their families.
Gals hopes to create a viral outpouring of support during October’s Breast

Pre-registration for The Gal to Gal Walk will begin Wednesday, September 26, with official
walk dates of October 1 – October 31, 2007.
in The Gal to Gal Walk by creating your virtual likeness online and then
watch yourself take a virtual walk across America. The walk will commence
in the Virtual World of Harvard Square in Boston, MA, and will conclude on the
Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, visiting 29 cities along the way. The
landscape walkers travel through will change on a daily basis, giving participants a
reason to return to see where they are walking that day. New walkers will be
joining all the time – sharing their stories and building momentum as more
people participate in this innovative fundraising effort.
Register for the Gal to Gal Walk at galtogalwalk.org for a $3
donation beginning Wednesday, September 26. After designing your character, you will be added to the walk
landscape where you can also invite your friends and family to join you.
Supporters will receive a virtual goody bag with items donated by the
Foundation’s strategic partners.
We will keep you posted on our journey! Come on! It’s a great cause and you virtually don’t have to break a sweat!
