FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE / PRURGENT
Goblins and ghouls alike are invited to visit the Queens Center for Rehabilitation and Healthcare on Sunday, Oct. 30, 2011 to attend the annual MasquerWalk A Thon, a free event for Breast Cancer awareness.
Located in front of the long and short term rehab facility at 157-15 19th Ave. in Whitestone, N.Y., the MasquerWalk A Thon will begin at 11 a.m. and will be followed by a free party for all ages featuring refreshments, rides, prizes, and more.
"The MasquerWalk A Thon is a chance for Queens Center residents, family members, and staff, in addition to local politicians, students, neighbors, and attendees representing the American Cancer Society, to come together to support a terrific cause. We'll be giving away a prize to everyone who shows up in costume, so we're encouraging members of the community to bring their hats, masks, capes, and brooms," said Kenneth Rozenberg, the CEO of the Centers for Specialty Care Group, an NYC nursing home network which encompasses the Queens Center.
Providing a little something for everyone, the MasquerWalk A Thon will also include face-painting, raffles, arts and crafts activities, and live music. Representatives from the American Cancer Society will be in attendance to support the cause and provide information on additional ways to get involved in the fight against cancer.
Part of Centers for Specialty Care Group, a comprehensive NYC rehab center network, the Queens Center for Rehabilitation and Healthcare features a renowned hip and knees program, as well as 24-hour skilled nursing and a dedicated subacute short term rehab staff.
