On May 15, 16 and 17 a group of over 40 women will be walking 60 miles in the 7th annual Just ‘Cause Breast Cancer Walk in support of the Virginia Thurston Healing Garden and the Gillette Center for Women’s Cancers at Mass General Hospital.
Participants in the Just ‘Cause walk pay their own expenses so 100% of money raised from the walk will go directly to the organizations. Last year this event raised $153,000 for The Healing Garden and Gillette Center.

You can send checks made out to Just ‘Cause to McLaren and Associates. All donations are 100% tax deductible – a receipt will be sent to all who donate. If you would like to designate which organization will benefit from your donation write “VTHG” for The Healing Garden or “MGH” for the Gillette Center in the memo of your check.
