The Wilmot Warrior Walk is more than just a fundraiser or a run; it’s also a celebration of cancer survivorship. The post-walk celebration will kick off at 10:30 a.m. at the Highland Park Bowl. The No-Name Band will play live music and Scott Spezzano from 98.9 The Buzz will serve as emcee. We’ll also have food trucks, bounce houses, survivorship resources, massage, yoga and more.

At 11:45 a.m., we’ll have a short awards ceremony (see below for a description of the awards). We hope you’ll stick around after your walk or run to celebrate with us!

Finisher’s Medals

Everyone who completes the 5K, 10K or 1-mile walk will receive a Wilmot Warrior Walk medal. We even have a special version for all of our cancer survivors! We’ll also have goody bags filled with special offers and coupons for our participants. Make sure you pick yours up after your run/walk.

Donations received after that will not count towards the award.

We have a few activities just for kid and teens. A bounce house and obstacle course as well as face painting will be available. 

Survivorship and Wellness Tent Activities

  • Free Massage: Students from the Onondaga School of Therapeutic Massage will perform short, complementary massages from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Visit the Survivorship and Wellness Tent after the race/walk to receive a massage!
  • Yoga: After your run or walk, stretch and relax with some yoga. Learn about different strengthening and lengthening poses as well as stretching and relaxation techniques from local yoga practitioners. Yoga is set up open-house style: Join for as much time as you’d like!
  • Community Organizations: Cancer survivors and caregivers impacted by cancer can learn about community groups, including Naiaides Rowing, the Pancreatic Cancer Association of Western New York, Breast Cancer Coalition of Rochester, 13Thirty Cancer Connect, the University of Rochester Medical Center PEAK Lab, Gilda’s Club Rochester and Cancer Services Program of Monroe County. We encourage participants to go talk to them to learn more about their work and services.
