Our Walk

Hi family and friends,

After taking a year off TEAM WALK FOR DEE is back and looking to build a team to raise both awareness and donations in an effort to stomp CANCER.

This year the walk is on Sunday September 25th. 
Walk Registration: 8:00 am
Five Mile and One Mile Walk Start: 10:00 am

The name of our team is and always will be WALK FOR DEE. However, we always walk in honor and memory of all of our loved family and friends who have battled Cancer. We walk in Dee's name because it is her that motivated us to begin walking as a team for Umass. One name has started something so big for so many people. All are loved and thought of equally.


As we have in the past we will also be walking in memory of our other family members. Ronnie Pepin and Maria Caraballo who both lost their battle with Brain Cancer. Barbara Spencer whom was recently re-diagnosed with Lung Cancer and Robert Pepin who unfortunately just lost his short battle w/ Brain Cancer on 4/13/2009. Lillian Ward who lost her battle with Bladder Cancer in 1989. This year we will also walk in honor of my father Antonio "PACO' Bultron who is fighting the good fight against Prostate Cancer. Uncle Edwin "Moose"  lost his fight with Cancer. We walk in victory of Chad Bousquet who at a young age fought and won the battle with Cancer and is still in remission. It is all too sad that each year we must add to the list of people we walk in Honor of. Lets stop this from happening again.  Each time we add to the list it gives us even more of a reason to raise more $$$ and awareness.

As you can see Cancer has touch our family many times and continues to show its face year after year. We need your help along w/ many others to both raise funds and awareness. Your donation means more to team WALK FOR DEE than you can ever know and will benefit all of those who continue to fight their battles with Cancer. Your gift means a lot to UMASS Walk to Cure Cancer as well as myself, family and friends.

If you should have any questions feel free to contact me directly at the below email address. Also if you are interested in walking as part of our team or have any other fundraising ideas to offer we would be glad to hear from you.

This is WALK FOR DEE's 11th  year walking and we would like to make this the best year yet. By donating and/ or spreading the word you can help us reach our goal.

Every dollar counts. Together we can make a difference to many families.

Thank you in advance,


Gwen Bultron
