20 Years of Hope: Walk for Awareness

2019 marks a milestone year for Englewood Health Foundation’s Walk for Awareness, with the beloved community fundraiser celebrating its 20th anniversary later this fall. Founded by Jill Fader and her late husband and former City of Englewood Mayor, Paul Fader, the Walk has inspired—and mobilized—thousands in our community to fundraise in support of The Leslie Simon Breast Care and Cytodiagnosis Center at Englewood Hospital. Helping to spearhead enthusiasm and support for the Walk is medical director of the breast center, Dr. Miguel Sanchez. He is credited by the Faders for quickly diagnosing Jill’s cancer and saving her life. To date, funds raised have helped to offset costs of care for uninsured and underinsured women in our community.

Help us make a difference! Sponsorship opportunities are available and online registration is now open. Visit to get started and encourage friends, family and colleagues to support the 2019 Walk for Awareness set for October 27 at the Englewood Field Club. Employee support for the Walk delivers a poignant message: We care for our patients and will go above and beyond to ensure that they have access to the services that they need when they need it.

Employees are invited to use WFA2019employee, a special one-time code for discounted $10 registration. You can also help to spread the word by displaying posters or table top displays in offices. Contact the Foundation at 201.894.3725 for more information.
