Ellen Karis, the Greek Goddess of Comedy (www.ellenkaris.com), hosted the T.E.A.L. Walk and kept the crowd engaged. Harbor Fitness literally warmed everyone up by bringing the crowd together for a pre-walk warm up. Top 24 American Idol star, Brielle Von Hugel, came out and performed to support our cause. Stacey Sager, Ovarian Cancer survivor and member of Channel 7’s News Team, was the first to participate in the survivor ceremony, and came out to show her support with Dr. Sapna Parikh, Medical Correspondent for Channel 7 Eyewitness News who got the crowd pumped up and introduced a few of our performers! Empire A Cappella(www.empireacappella.com) sang their entire repertoire of songs; they are awesome! Mallory Hagan, Christian Moore, Maria DeSantis, Jamie Lynn Macchia, Katie Berry, Katie Guevarra, Daphaney Jacquitte, Jaleesa Peterkin, Stephanie Accardo, and Jessica Johnson honored the survivors with sashes in the Survivor Ceremony. At the event, Brooklyn Borough President, Marty Markowitz gave T.E.A.L. a proclamation!
But lastly, a HUGE thanks to all of our volunteers, walkers, teams and survivors who participated in the event! This event would not be possible without all of your undying support. Thanks to all those who were involved, together we are one step closer to stopping this terrible disease!
