LARKSPUR, CA, August 19, 2012 /24-7PressRelease/
-- Cheryl Indelicato, Registered Nurse and 3rd generation California vintner, will lead Team HandCraft in the 3-Day 60 mile Walk for the Cure in San Francisco and Atlanta as part of an expanded initiative by HandCraft Artisan Collection wines to support the fight against breast cancer. HandCraft Artisan Collection includes four wines: Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Petite Sirah. Cheryl created the wines to honor women and has selected breast cancer research as the beneficiary. A portion of proceeds from the sale of the wines, up to $100K in 2012, will be given to national and local organizations that support breast cancer awareness, research and prevention.
"As a nurse, I have seen first-hand the tremendous impact this disease has on women and their families," remarked Indelicato. "Participation in the 3-Day walk is a way to get involved personally and make a meaningful contribution. I am looking forward to the challenge of walking 60 miles over three days and sharing this experience with other committed walkers. I know it will be a life changing journey." The SF Bay Area walk kicks off in Marin County on September 7, 2012 and ends in San Francisco on September 9 after crossing two bridges and covering 60 miles.
Team HandCraft has fielded a parallel team, led by winemaker Alicia Ysais, to participate in the Komen SF Bay Area Race for the Cure that takes place September 9 while the 3-Day is still underway. Cheryl Indelicato and Team HandCraft will also walk in the Atlanta 3-Day October 19-21.
