Holland America hopes its guests feel strongly about getting some exercise and finding a cure for breast cancer. On April 1, the cruise line will begin its “On Deck for the Cure” program, in which guests on approximately 500 sailings throughout the year will be encouraged to participate in a 5K onboard walk to benefit breast cancer research. Walkers will donate $15 or more to join in this noncompetitive event, and all participants will receive a T-shirt, pink-ribbon wristband, and an invitation to a pink lemonade reception.
All proceeds will go to the Holland America Line Foundation, which will donate 75 percent of the money raised to the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation. The Komen Foundation supports breast cancer research grants and community outreach programs.
So, lace up your sneakers and start walking!
