More Than Pink Walk

Garrison Forest has participated in the walk for twenty-two years in support of Komen Maryland's commitment to ensuring quality care for breast cancer patients, energizing science to find the cures to save lives and ultimately ending breast cancer within our children’s lifetime. We are proud that for many years we were the the largest school team and won the Team Challenge for our strong commitment and dedication to the cause. 

We want to continue this wonderfully spirited tradition and need the support of all of our students, parents, alumnae, faculty and staff and friends. This year the Garrison Forest team can register for FREE! Please register by clicking the link below and join us at the walk! Include WETHANKYOU as your promo code when you register. Komen's promotion this year is If you raise $100 you will receive a t-shirt the day of the race.
