Pay Tribute To Someone You Love: Add A Name To The New England Walkers For Knockers "Heroes of Hope" Calendar

Here's your chance to add the name of someone you love to a "Heroes of Hope" calendar being published by the New England Walkers for Knockers. Your donation of $10 or more will sponsor a special tribute printed on a day in the calendar.

UPDATE: The calendar went to press Aug. 17th!!

The Calendar will feature pictures and the stories of 13 Women and 1 Man, some who are currently fighting breast cancer, some who have beat breast cancer and one who survived it, but recently passed away from other health related illnesses.

"Each of them is sharing their story, some talking about what they went through and how it affected their life; their stories are a true inspiration to all," said Brenda Smith, founding organizer of the Walkers for Knockers group. "Please take a moment to check out our website for more information about the calendar such as why we decided to do this project, who was involved in creating it and where the proceeds raised will be donated."

The New England Walkers For Knockers website also lists some upcoming events, including the 2nd Annual Ride For The Cure motorcycle ride in October. The ride will again this year be lead by California celebrity rider, Brenda Fox.
In the past five years, the New England Walkers for Knockers has raised $115,000 for the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer. This is a new path forward for the group, aimed at helping people on a more personal basis to face the emotional and financial burdens associated with struggling to overcome breast cancer.

"For a donation of $10, you can sponsor yourself or a loved one to celebrate being cancer free. You can memorialize a loved one who has passed from cancer or make a gift donation. "Several people and companies have stepped forward to sponsor a whole month in the calendar, and we would love to have a couple more contributing corporate sponsors," said Brenda Smith. "The print deadline for sponsors to be printed in the calendar is August 14. However, we would gladly accept a donation at any time. Please don’t hesitate to email me with any questions."

Holiday Calendar Gift Idea: You can also order the calendars for $25 each plus $4 for S&H. They will be ready to ship in mid-September. Anyone who has been affected by breast cancer, which is most everyone we know, will appreciate this beautiful calendar. The Heroes of Hope calendar will make a wonderful Christmas present and it is easy to order on the website
