Our Mission Statement

Georgia Alliance for Breast Cancer’s  mission is to engage with Georgia’s breast cancer community to increase access to care and reduce disparities in cancer outcomes.

Our History

Georgia Alliance for Breast Cancer (Formerly It’s The Journey) – producer of the Georgia 2-Day Walk for Breast Cancer – is a local organization founded in 2002 by a breast cancer survivor, Randi Passoff. When the Avon 3-Day Breast Cancer Walk pulled out of Atlanta in 2002, Randi, a long time walker, decided that Atlanta needed a fundraising event wherein all of the funds stayed local to support Georgia breast cancer patients and breast health programs.  She created what we call “the kinder and gentler breast cancer walk.”  Instead of the 3-Day model of walking 60 miles over 3 days and sleeping in a tent, the Georgia 2-Day Walk covers 30 miles over 2 days and participants sleep in a hotel.
