On Deck for the Cure Fact: Oct. 4, 2010

In support of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we’ll be posting an On Deck for the Cure Fact every day we publish this month.

More than 150,000 Holland America Line guests have joined in nearly 2,000 On Deck for the Cure walks, a non-competitive 5k walk of nine to 13 laps around the ships’ teak decks on 500 sailings annually.

Holland America Line’s newest member of the fleet, ms Nieuw Amsterdam, held its inaugural walk on July 6, 2010, as seen in the above photo. More than 500 guests, including Ambassador Nancy G. Brinker, Founder and CEO for Susan G. Komen for the Cure, participated in the walk and raised $40,000 to help fight breast cancer.
