Additional Components
 

One Voice Walks (Virtual)

Rather than just one large walk in Washington, DC, this year will feature hundreds of informal neighborhood One Voice walks around the country. Some walks may involve one person and others might involve many families. Customized banners with the name of your group, organization or community will be available for purchase at cost. 


Custom CureFest App (Virtual and In-Person)


Participants will be interconnected virtually through an interactive, custom app that will count the group’s steps for the day. Based on the number of participants, we will have a group goal for steps taken on September 24 and 25. There will also be unique ways for families to share updates and words of encouragement with other families.


CureFest LiveStream 


CureFest program with speakers and performers will be streamed on September 24 and 25 prior to the One Voice community walks.


CureFest Beads and Medals


Honor beads will be provided to in-person participants. Medals will be presented to all survivors, fighters, and siblings in attendance. 

Virtual participants will have the opportunity to purchase honor beads and medals for survivors, fighters, siblings, parents and advocates.
