Cancer Ribbon Walk

Paver Program

The Cancer Ribbon Walk is dedicated to patients and families who have courageously fought cancer and served as an inspiration for others. The lavender ribbon color is the universal symbol for all types of cancer and is a reminder that we can give hope to conquering this disease through support and advocacy.

Mosaic Life Care Foundation invites caregivers to purchase an engraved paver to honor or memorialize a friend or loved one. An engraved paver placed in the Cancer Ribbon Walk is a wonderful way to support and inspire cancer patients and their families. Your purchase makes a donation to the Foundation and is tax deductible to the extent allowed by law.

Mosaic caregivers have the first opportunity to purchase an engraved paver.

June 7 – 14: Limit two pavers per caregiver.

June 15: If available, additional pavers for purchase.

June 30: Deadline to order via payroll deduction.

All orders placed in summer 2022 will be installed fall 2022.
