Sigma Delta Tau Wendy Walk

On October 6th, my sisters and I in Sigma Delta Tau at the Alpha Mu Chapter at the University of Miami, will be hosting our 6th annual fall philanthropy, the Wendy Walk Relays. The Wendy Walk is a non-profit organization whose mission is to raise awareness for liposarcoma, a rare form of soft tissue cancer that is currently untreatable. 

This foundation is near and dear to our hearts, as we started the event to honor the mother of one of our own sisters, Jackie Landes (Class of 2013). In 2010, Jackie’s mother Wendy, was diagnosed with this rare form of cancer. Alongside her two siblings Ali and Matt, Jackie started the walk to help fund for their mothers treatments. Unfortunately in 2013, Wendy lost her battle to this terrible cancer. Yet, Wendy’s legacy lives on through the Wendy Walk, which continues to expand nationally in participation and fundraising. Thus far, it has raised over 3.4 million dollars for liposarcoma research, and hosts three annual walks in Miami, New York City, and Los Angeles.

In continuing support of our sister and to find a cure for this form of cancer, we as a chapter also continue to raise awareness and funds through our fall philanthropy event, the Wendy Walk Relays. On Sunday, October 6th, we will be participating in relay events with the University of Miami community. They Wendy Walk works to provide hope, strength and courage to those fighting a rare cancer - we hope to pass these efforts on in our community.
