One night in 1996, Nina Barough had a dream about Walking the New York City Marathon in a decorated bra to raise money for breast cancer initiatives. At the time, Nina’s life was untouched by breast cancer but months after she completed that first marathon walk in her decorated bra, she was diagnosed with an aggressive breast cancer. The success of her first walk marked the humble beginning of Walk the Walk, a multi-million dollar charity, and it’s very own challenge, The MoonWalk. The MoonWalk aims to raise money so anyone with breast cancer can receive the care they need, regardless of financial restrictions. For the past two years, Walk the Walk America has made a grant to Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in support of their Breast Examination Center of Harlem.
