Cancelled - Ostomy Awareness Walk (Cooperman Barnabas Medical Center)

Our apologies, but due to the weather, this event has been cancelled for Saturday, October 7. We will notify you if it is rescheduled.


On World Ostomy Day and to raise ostomy awareness and increase national visibility for those living with ostomies, CBMC’s Ostomy Nurses invite staff, patients and community members to an outdoor walk around the CBMC Walking Trail. 

Ostomy surgery is a life-saving procedure that allows bodily waste to pass through a surgically created stoma on the abdomen into pouch or ostomy bag on the outside of the body. An ostomy may be necessary due to birth defects, cancer, inflammatory bowel disease, diverticulitis, incontinence and many other medical conditions. They are also necessary in cases of severe abdominal or pelvic trauma resulting from accidents or from injuries sustained during military service.

Please let us know you are coming to the walk by registering online.

On the day of the event, please park in the Visitors' Parking Lot and meet at the flag pole in the front of the hospital.  Employees should park in their regularly assigned lot.

There is no fee to participate.
